Worth turning a frozen pile?
I got a nice smokin' hot pile of shredded leaves going this fall (my first leaf composting adventure), right before we went into a good freeze of single digit days and nights. I know the outside is frozen stiff and there may or may not be activity on the center (thermometer is on my Christmas list).
Now we're finally looking at some "warm" temps, with highs all the way up to the mid 30's! I'm itching to do something outside and I love turning piles. So the question is: would the pile actually heat up again after turning in mid-winter or would it just be some good physical activity for me?
And there's always the possibility that It might be more like chopping wood than pile turning if I have a giant compost ice cube...
