In a couple of weeks, it will be seed planting time here in zone 5. Today I checked my compost pile and it is frozen solid as a brick. Two full swings of an ax and I only left a dent. I may have to get the chain saw out or the gunpowder or something. God forbid if I have to use that commercial junk. If I could get a couple of chunks out, I could nuke it in the microwave to thaw. Does anybody have suggestions?
