How long does it take for my compost to be ready?

Depending on the materials added and the ambient temperature, your compost should be ready anywhere from 2 – 10 weeks. Follow the table below for an approximate guide:

Ambient Temperature Time (Days)
75 °F (25 °C) ~ 55
85 °F (30 °C) ~ 40
95 °F (35 °C) ~ 35

NOTE: However, the only sure fire way to check if your compost is ready is if it looks, feels and smells like rich, dark earth rather than rotting vegetables. In other words, it should be dark brown, crumbly and smell like earth.
