So somehow we purchased this little beauty and it quietly swayed back and forth as we drove home from the big smoke. That night I dreamed of finding the perfect place for it, then filling it up with the half matured compost from my old bin. How many times would it be tumbled every day? Could anyone tumble it when they walked past or would there have to be a specified "tumbler"? Oh this was exciting! Surely there are other people who get this excited about a new compost bin? Hubby reckons I am a special breed! the following evening I worked into the dark setting it up. My! doesn't it look pretty!
So now I have the processing compost, and the finished compost, but where do I put the next lot as it accumulates? Do I need 3 bins? I know that if you have bays three are recommended, but I don't have the space for three bins. I had a bucket with holes drilled into it that I had intended to make an in ground worm bin, so for now I put that on top of the finished compost in the old bin while it accumulates. I don't want to attract flies and cockroaches, so have been wrapping it all in newspaper. Mulched leaves can accumulate in a rubbish bin, and green clippings I can lay on the ground under the plants. What does everyone else do in this situation?
