QR Compost Maker

Would you mind please letting me know if you happen to know roughly how long your Compost Maker product takes to actually convert most items to garden-ready compost?

Much depends on the local conditions, time of year, and the materials in the compost. But in general it will take 4-5 months if unturned and as little as 2-3 months if turned every few weeks and if the carbon:nitrogen balance is approximately 30:1.

The QR ("Quick Return") shaves a few weeks off the usual times required, and many gardeners find that the resulting compost is of a richer, "sweeter" nature.
