Wednesday Gardening – Composter

The garden is still in winter mode, but I’m doing a few bits of infrastructure work.  So far this month I’ve put together two of these composters to make compost.  One is full and this is the new one we’re starting to fill up.

The new rotary composter

    I’m notoriously lazy when it comes to compost-making. “Just a big pile” is the best I’ve done.

    I assume you have to add water occasionally? (That would be quite beyond me)

  2. Beautiful looking corner of the garden. I want one of those composters too.

    How much does one of those barrel things cost? It would sure simplify the process a little.

  4. I’ve been wanting a rotary composter – so much easier to turn the mess, and the rodents don’t get into it… or so I’ve heard. How do you like it?

    • So far I like them. They’re a bit of work to assemble but seem secure against rodents. A full one of these can be a workout to turn. I got the largest one I could, but there are smaller models too. We got too and started one a couple of weeks ago. So far it seems to be doing its job.

  5. Fancy! I’m a bit ashamed to say our composter is just a big heap in a corner of our back yard…but of course, we live in the country.

    Everybody needs a good compost pile, but what if you don’t have a garden?

    those are the best kind of composters, easy to mix up the layers when you add stuff. Also easy to get the finished product out! I have one like that and 3 of the older, block style types. The rotating one probably produces final compost three times faster!
