  3. We started gardening last year and I am looking to start composting next.

    After installing a 4.2kW rooftop wind turbine system that’s worth looking at if anyone is interested. I posted that to look at. So, next we are going to start composting and using that in the garden. I like the bin.

  4. have a outdoors (gardening fishing hunting) question? write it down on the coments on my channel or send me a message on my channel

  5. Greetings! If you have any questions about gardening please take a look at my page, it’s very helpful and easy!

  6. It is vital that no matter what the compost bin or style you feel is right for you, it is properly aerated and has a hole large enough for you to get your compost out of. In addition, your bin should be something that is convenient for you something that you can get to and from easily, and that will be practical for all of your gardening needs.

  7. Mixture of materials to put in bin, it needs air. it needs to be kept warm, it needs turning every week ideally. new materials as often as possible. Pee on it often. (I jest not) With a rotating bin it is possible to make good compost in 8 weeks.

  8. i have tried a couple of compost bins. To be honest i have gotten the best results just making a pile and leaving it, turning it every couple of weeks. Two drawbacks in my opinion of bins is air circulation and creating a barrier for insects to enter. i had a black compost bin which from what i read was a popular model. The contents never got hot. This baffled me for a long time then i decided to just make a pile in a sunny area. after a good rain it gets piping hot.

  9. re ur size constraints, compost can be made in one gallon batches. also, it is newer technology to have a bin u can roll. like a garbage can. no turning plus easily it is taken to the area needed and no wheelbarrow/shovel work.

  10. this is very cool. I have a problem with critters…they dig underneath & get in that way —

    Does this have a wood bottom? And if so does that keep the skunks & raccoons out??
