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!
