I find it easer to never turn the pile, when the pile (4x4x4) is 1-
year old I screen it & throw the uncomposted material into next years
bin. There is very little that will not be composted.
It takes a year using all materials on my one acre of land to build a
pile 4x4x4, 64 cubic feet, which takes about 10 x 64cu ft or 640 cubic
ft of materials to make a pile of compost 4x4x4.
It then sets a year ( summer solstice to summer solstice June,22)
while I'm building a new one.
Now if you have a 4x4x4 bin full of material & you start turning,
you'll probably end with 6 cu ft, one wheelbarrow full. My way I get
128 wheelbarrows of compost a year.
Have never aerated and can't see why I should. Have been doing this
for eight years.
