two practical compost pile questions
1. Does anyone find that turning the compost pile is made easier (more fun obviously...) when aided by a significant other? I feel like "honey, help me turn the pile!" would have a lot more gravitas with this forum's support.
2. How do you actually use the compost? The new kitchen stuff is on top and the "finished" stuff in on the bottom. So the good stuff is hard to get to, except that there is also the variable that you are always turning it! (Aside from having two piles, of course...) Should I just grab a handful of a dirty looking leaf/grass mix and put it in the bottom of whatever I am trying to grow?
