My new compost bin, made from re-purposed wooden pallets and chicken wire. (The total cost to make this was the $12.98 we spent on the chicken wire.) Now that this bad boy is put together, we can rake up the remaining leaves and pile them in. The front of the bin has a slot that you can use to add or remove wooden slats, so when the compost is done cookin’, I can just remove the boards, and rake it out. It’s also conveniently located right next to the garden, so I won’t have to go very far. Hubby will make the lid soon, and then I can start putting the really good stuff (food scraps) in there. I have been wanting this compost bin for more than a year, and I can already tell that it’s going to be well worth the wait!
