Our New Composter!

Isn't it marvelous! This is our new, homemade composter. Hubby did most of the construction of the wood and I attached the wire. Last year, our little store-bought composter was simply too small. This one is large enough to hold all the kitchen and yard waste from our 1 acre plot. And, since it has wire for walls it allows for maximum airflow to speed up the composting process!

Check out the wire chimney. So simple, yet brilliant! It allows air to circulate into the center of the pile.

This all was inspired by Mike McGrath's book: The Book of Compost.
