Storing compost

Asked October 23, 2019, 5:48 PM EDT

I am composting kitchen scraps via Bokashi and finishing it in a drum composter. What is the best way to store finished compost for use in the spring? Snow will keep me from spreading finished compost where I plan to use it.

Once the compost is finished, it can be stored right in the drum composter. Otherwise you could store it in a plastic trashbag. If it is more than slightly moist, poke holes in the page to allow air to enter.
