i've yet to get a hot pile here in 10 years but i don't have grass clipping i rely on green stuff from the garden and it's not shredded. at my other house i had a small lawn and bagged the grass clippings. my pile was about 5' X 4' X 3' and it got HOT! when i'd turn it steam would pour out and no lie you couldn't get near the pile! i made compost fast. here it takes time w/o grass clippings.
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life
