"Harvesting" Finished Compost...

I plan to start composting & just built a homemade tumbler. But I'm confused about how to "harvest" the finished compost... If you continually add new material to the mix, it won't all break down at the same time, so you'll end up w/finished compost mixed in w/all the raw material you've been adding So how do you "harvest"/remove ONLY the finished/ready-to-USE compost without the non-finished stuff?

If you're continually adding new materials to the compost tumbler, you may need to sift the material in the composter to harvest the finished product. The compost that is ready to use will fall through 1/4 inch mesh screen. Larger materials can be put back into the composter to continue decomposing.
