Michael made this compost bin for me in 2018. I usually scoop out of it to fill 2/3 of a new bed and top it with topsoil. The last two years I've made lasagna beds and gone with layer composting. We've talked about another compost bin....I'm torn. I'd like it close to the garden for ease of moving compost, but I'd like one near the house as the walk out to the garden in the winter seems long. In fact, there comes a point every winter when we have a wall of snow out our back door and can't walk directly out to the garden. What to do?
We were debating and then Michael told Alex he needed to empty and move the compost bed, now. Hmmm...
He and I untangled the snapped frame from last year's lasagna bed. I put compost in here through the winter. There is space in it...I suggested we just put all the compost here and I not use this bed this year to be sure the chicken manure has aged a year. Alex liked the idea of leaving it here rather than unloading it and loading it all back into a new bin. LOL
