A New Compost Bin
My husband was able to construct a nifty compost bin this weekend out of free pallets. I think it will work well for making organic compost for the gardens. We may try to fabricate fronts for them, or we may leave them open so we can turn the piles with the tractor or skid loader. We will be layering the compost materials in the bins (brown... like leaves, green...like grass clippings and veggie scraps, and soil to help activate and make it compost even faster). We will probably also add things like egg shells, coffee grounds, and maybe manure. We will soon be making black gold for the garden!
