If you have the right mix of browns, greens, & water, and you turn the pile every day, it will be ready in 2 weeks. I did this once as an experiment, and it worked for me. However I would only do this if you are in a big hurry. Far better just to turn it whenever you need some exercise.

This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
