Come tumble compost with me



As Mr. and Mrs. Garden have moved to their smaller house, they have sold me this composter for $150.00. Of course the one I'm buying is under snow at the moment but if there is another nice day tomorrow, Mr. Greenjeans and I are off work together and can try and pick it up. This is great as all my other compost means are full and the chicken coop needs cleaning.

Have any of you used one of these? How do you like it?

Our food storage feasting today includes leftover lentil soup and cornbread made from the ground corn from the garden. I think it is the grind available from the country living corn auger that has the sweet corn making much better cornbread than polenta.

They can get hard to turn. Other than that I think they work well.

I probably shouldn't get it too full - considering I have a big pile o stuff to go into it.

I have the apartment-sized version of that same tumbler. The tiny one doesn't work in the winter, but it does work during summer. I hear the big ones work great, even in winter, if you can maintain volume.

Turning the small one can be hard- you have to put your whole body into it. I figure it's part of my exercise routine.
