Not that kind of dirt. The kind ya grow stuff in, sheesh.
For a real long time now, I've been hoping that a compost bin would appear somewhere in my yard, and that I would be able to amend my icky Florida soil with black goodness free of charge.
Well after three years of grimacing whilst chucking kitchen scraps in the trash, and waiting for the compost fairy to arrive, I've decided enough is enough. I've got acres of oak leaves, mounds of coffee grounds, eggshells out the wazoo...not to mention a big ol' pile of chicken poo sitting useless under the coop. I've got to stop hoping and procrastinating and just make a compost bin already.
I love the idea of a tumbler like this one, but I admit I am averse to all that plastic.
I love how pretty this bent willow one looks but seems impractical.
This beehive inspired bin is super cute. But I'll be honest--it looks complicated to make and my goal is to get this done soon.
Honestly I'm probably just going to get some pallets and build something like this one. Because it's easy. And cheap. Did I mention easy?
So my question for you is this--Does anyone out there compost, and if so what kind of bin do you use/recommend? Would you do a separate bin for leaves to make leaf mold? I'm a total amateur so any advice would be great!!
