Today was beautiful day here in the Springs, so we decided it was a good day to work in last years compost pile.
In 2013 we purchased from craigslist a really nice used compost tumbler. After using it through the first season we decided that it was not fast or efficient enough for our scale of garden. The compost heaps outside waiting to go into the bin were composting down faster than the product inside the barrel. So we decided to sell the composter and just build a cheap ground version from scraps laying around and you know what? It works wonderfully.
