    ha! then it takes about 2-3 years?
    My GOD! I rather just pile it up on a corner of my propery and let it work it self, whithout me caring for it. Let nature work on it as she pleases!
    Then why are we using the CONTAINER TO DO THE COMPOST??? What a waste of money , time and energy!

    The length of time it takes for compost to be ready delpends on what you put in the ccompost heap, for example I used loads of Oak leaves and theey can take 2 years to break down and yes I do turn the heap, but after 2 years it looks like black peat and is wonderful soil conditioner

    when is it the best time to make a compost bin in the(winter,summer,spring,orfall?)

    I throw my compost in my flowerbeds during the fall whether it’s ready or not. It won’t do any harm, because it’s spread out over all my beds.

    yeap, it also sounds to me like a little too long. I guess it also depends on climate, here in Mexico it’s ready in a couple of months in summer and three months max in winter. Your design is interesting, but a bit unpractical for turning, as the ready-to-be-used compost is lying at the bottom…
