2nd Compost bin started

The first compost bin worked so well we finally made our second bin. It is a bit more of an experiment (I can never leave well enough alone) because we are trying a rolling trash bin to see if it is easier to handle. I meant to take a picture but when we moved the first compost bin the dirt under it was amazing. Almost loamy and black and rich looking. I am going to put moving that through the garden as part of my gardening schedule so that more areas of the soil can benefit from being the recipient of the run off.

My friend Mary in Florida advises that if you can't put the compost bin directly in your garden you find some method of capturing the run off to use as liquid compost as you water your garden.

  1. I have to tell you, I have been thinking about you and that compost bin, a LOT. I am still dumping food scraps out in a small fenced in spot to no good purpose. I think I need to go back and re-read and give this a shot....
