If I can compost in Alaska, anywhere in the lower 48 should be allot faster & easier. Big Garden compost bin full to the top last Fall (Sept): I'll be adding 3 - 3" air pipes on the bottom for the next batch. I know now, the bottom air pipes really help. A much better 1/2 done batch with the small pipes, more air will help. Lots of shrinkage. Just pilled the front doors off: You can see it needs more time, stringy, leafy, moldy, , I'll mix in fresh grass clippings & let it work (cook) until August, then store the done compost in the "done bin". Then I have compost for next spring ready to go.
