Winter is coming. That is probably one of my favorite phrases from the Game of Thrones' character, Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell. As Alaskans, I am sure that the same phrase reverberates from our lips every September.
As the bumper sticker on my truck reads, "Compost Happens." Sometimes, however, it doesn't happen fast enough.
That problem usually can be traced to some limiting factor in what a pile is fed, or to issues of moisture or aeration.
