140 Degrees for the WIN!

My compost thermometer finally arrived, and you KNOW I immediately upon unboxing ran outside and tested my straw bales.

These ones, as a reminder:

Anywho, they were ALL over 100 degrees, and two topped out at the goal temperature of 140 degrees!

They’re peaking, so as they cool a little I’ll be able to plant my potatoes, but right now I can’t tell if they’re on on the way up or on the way down. So I’ll check tomorrow and establish a trend so I know when it’s time.

Right now it’s too hot for delicate roots, so I’m waiting, but LOOK AT IT.

This one isn’t the hottest bale, but they’re all doing AMAZING!

SO EXCITED!
