Make your own / DIY Compost Turner

This little device was 'invented' by accident.

Faced with a broken broom handle, I soon discovered that it was great for plunging into the compost container you can see in a previous post, and removing the gaps and mixing the dead spots in the compost. Then I drilled the working end and drove a nail through it. The result to the compost when I pushed the item in and out of the compost container, twisting as I did so was amazing. It was 3 times as effective and even with the outside temperature below freezing point the now remixed compost soon started to heat up again.
