Do you make mulch in the winter too?

Once the temps got below freezing this year, I stopped saving my kitchen scraps for the composter. Last year I kept putting them into my tumbler but once it froze it was almost impossible to turn so I figured, what's the use? But it also feels weird throwing all that good stuff out, especially with the amount of soup I produce this time of year, not to mention baking with dozens upon dozens of eggs.

The bin is mostly full, due to the lawn clippings and leaves I put in there end of last season; at least I think it is, because I haven't even peeked in there recently. Just wondering if composting this time of year is a waste of time, or still a good idea? What do you do?
