Ava and I love to garden and I wanted rich soil. My neighbor built us this compost bin. I have to be honest composting is still new to me. I am learning as I go but wanted to share the bin with you and some composting tips. I toss in my yard clippings (it is full right now!) and kitchen leftovers all veggies and fruit. The gaps between the wood slats let air circulate around the pile to keep odors at bay and ensure that wastes are breaking down; the front has a doors which makes it easy to turn the pile and remove compost when it’s ready to spread.
There are many options for composting bins and you can even purchase one ready made for you if you do not want to build it yourself.
This Old House has great instructions on a Compost Bin DIY or search the web for easier or cheaper options.
I have not used my compost yet but plan to come spring. Happy Composting!
