My plans with my compost piles are as follows:
(1) Use up the finished compost in Bin#3 for potting up plants and some of the beds that will be needed for early planting next spring.
(2) A LOT of my beds have some kind of experimental cover crop and/or fall garden crop that are growing, which means I can't cover them up with compost or mulch. Depending on when the fall crop beds are completely done (some are also undergoing "can their season be extended if covered?" experiments), I'll use the half finished compost in Bin#2 in the beds OR in the paths. They should break down over the winter under additional leaf/straw/hay mulch and instead of leaching nutrients under the compost piles, leach them into the soil in the beds or at least in the paths surrounding the beds. I could shovel up the nutrient-rich soil from the paths to the beds in spring and spread mulch on the paths again to break down through the season.
(3) Bin#1 - is a commercial enclosed plastic recycling bin that I've been using to store hay and straw in. There's no point in keeping them in there, so I'll be using them to mulch with sometime between mid-November~Thanksgiving before the ground freezes
(4) Build a new pile with raw kitchen scraps, garden/yard waste and fall leaves plus the chunkiest unfinished compost from Bin#2. This would be a far smaller ratio of unfinished compost than I normally start with in fall.
I have to look ahead to seed starting time because I'll need a substantial amount of compost then for the seed starting mix. Last year, when I started the worm bin around November, I ended up with one full tray of finished vermicompost by spring. This year, I have 1/4 tray of finished compost already to start off with, and hopefully, a larger starting worm population. I've started feeding them regularly again so right now the tray consists of 1/4 finished, 1/8 unfinished, and 1/8 new.
I'll start bokashi composting again before the end of the month. This time, I'm going to be a bit more diligent about using the bokashi compost to feed the worms and keep up a regular bokashi->worms progression going.
GOAL -> TWO trays of finished vermicompost by seed starting time.
