Time to screen the compost

We have a three bin composter in the back. To get compost you take it from the oldest bin and screen it into the bin.

Today I also pitchforked the middle bin to the finished bin and the raw compost to the middle bin. It’s always amazing that so much raw material compacts down as much as it does. It’s pleasing how earthy and fresh compost smells. And it’s amazing that something seems unfazed by months of composting.
