Should I stop adding to my compost pile?

10 years ago

I've been adding greens and browns to a new compost pile since February and turning it frequently. It is in a pallet bin about 3'x3'x4'. It went through a nice heat generating stage but has cooled off a bit. Last time I turned it things had become a uniform dark color and looking about 50% broken down. I could keep adding but am thinking I have this pile about right and just need to let the current materials get broken down. I can start another pile as I will have quite a bit of pulled garden plants as plants bolt, etc.
