I tried something different and rare with my compost recently. I left about 2 gallons of raw maple syrup in a pail too long and got some sort of odd reaction. Might just be a slight fermentation but since I wasn't sure I decided to dump it in the compost. We had a soaking rain yesterday which might have caused a slight temp increase but since the temperature had leveled off at 130 F I wasn't expecting much from just moisture. What I got two days after adding the syrup was a compost temp of 156 F. A 26 degree jump in two days to temps I have not seen before in this pile. Very exciting.
Life is too short or my list is too long, not sure which.
