Congrats on your photo attachment AND your nice looking compost!
All that work tossing and turning things never talked me into making and tending a compost heap!

Whatever yard debris I have... I put into wire cages. I till it into the garden as soon as the soil warms and dries. Once the garden's planted, the new debris is added back into the now empty wire cages. That then is added to the garden the following Spring. I don't toss, turn, water nor do anything own once It's buried. It breaks down all by itself.

I often use yard waste/grass clippings, etc. as mulch in the flower beds or just leave yard debris lying where I cut it. I can't do that with kitchen scraps, however. I'm sure the neighbors would have a fit. For years I didn't have a pile, just let yard debris break down in the garden. I only started composting kitchen scraps a year or so ago and City regs say I have to do that in a closed pile. It's not all that much work and the end result is really nice! Plus, I'm putting a lot less trash out for the truck.
