First compost bin

Remember our drystone retaining wall we did a few weeks ago? Well I did mention the compost bins we were planning to build too - and we finally got one up. A very crude design but does the job wonderfully.

Instead of having the pallets laying around the yard, enticing termites to feed, we thought to put them to good use instead. Just a few star pickets (one on each side) then tied them together with galvanised wire. We've done compost pits in the ground before, but none really above ground so I'm expecting some sour heaps to come!

But it's all good practice and eventually we'll find the right balance.
