Step 1: Mesophilic Phase
Moderate Temperatures (<45*C/113*F)
& usually lasts for a couple of days
Step 2:Thermophilic Phase
High Temperatures (>45*C/113*-158*F)
& can last for weeks or months
Step 3: Curing Phase
Low Temperatures (<45*C/113*)

Step 4: Sifting
pass the finished compost through a screen.
Objects that are larger than the screen can be added to a new compost pile. They will be beneficial to a new compost pile because they contain microorganisms that will help jump-start the composting process.
Step 5 Finished Compost
How to tell if your compost is ready to use:
- it looks like dark, crumbly topsoil
- It has a pleasant, earthy odor. It should not smell like ammonia.
- The original organic materials (with a few exceptions) should no longer be recognizable.
- The compost pile should have shrunk by half the size.
- The pile should have returned to air temperature.
