Be patient with compost. Don't give in (again) to the desire to use it, just because it smells finished. If it still has bits of orange peel and egg shell and grass from the neighbors yard, it's not ready. If you do give in, you will be rewarded with an hour of bending and squatting and digging and pulling weeds. You will be rewarded with a sore back, feet, legs and bottom. You will be rewarded with the fact that you only scratched the surface of the number of weeds in your beds. Remember to take Advil before starting to pull weeds next time. Take two.
On a brighter note, remember the chickens were thrilled with the green bounty you dumped in the chicken yard. At least someone was happy about weeds.
