Being in Ca. the last time it rained was April, and when it get's hot, it's HOT! Being in S.C. you really won't have that much of a problem with H2O. I turn mine about every 2 weeks and right afterwards give it a healthy drink til it runs out the bottom and let it cook for 2 more weeks and repeat. I mostly make mine out of grass clippings and vary when I turn it with when I cut the lawn. Whatever, composting is a pretty much a no brainer activity, just throw the stuff in there and let nature do it's thing.rainbowgardener wrote:I think full sun will be fine, but as noted you will likely have to water it more. If your pile dries out, it stops working. Mine is in a shady spot, but even so since we have had essentially no rain since end of June, I've been watering my compost pile every time I water the garden. It takes a fair amount of time standing there putting water on it for the water to be able to percolate into the interior.
