When we moved into our house, our first housewarming present was this cool composter. It filled up pretty quickly so we had to get a garbage pail as a secondary composter. Next to the compost bins is our ugly garage that is falling apart. So embarrassing! Our neighbors hate our garage! We plan on rebuilding this garage next year, that is our "big project" for 2011.
I'm not sure if we are doing this correctly. We try to balance the greens and browns, and keep things moist, but not sopping wet. This is what it looks like inside. Sometimes you can even see it "steaming". How long does hot compost usually take to fully compost? I'm hoping to use this black gold in the garden next year! We bought so much compost for the garden this year, that I don't want to spend another cent on compost ever again! It pains me everytime I have to buy... well dirt!
