Compost Bin Update

by on October 19, 2008

At long last, the weather has cooled down and I found myself with two hands free on a sunday afternoon.  Back to work!

It’s done!  I cut down the vertical braces to be level with the top, and i added screening to all of the holes on the side, so as to prevent flies from getting in.  Is it ghetto?  Yes.  Was it cheap? Yes.  Will it work? Time will tell.

I tore up all of our junk mail and put some leaves from the backyard in.  I’ll add food as we produce waste.  I’ll keep you all posted.  This could either end up very good or very bad.  Woohoo!

  1. impressive!

  2. Be careful if you use a pitchfork to turn the compost! The spikes will catch your netting and make a good ol’ mess. Otherwise, looks like it’ll work well. Good luck!
