I have been so excited with the new addition to our garden…a new compost bin!
A mixture of pine and douglas fir/oregon I am told. My wonderful man made it for us. It is of a good height so that we can get a spade in to it easily to turn the growing heap. And it is dismantleable when it comes time to dig out and distribute the compost treasure. There happened to be a concrete slab under it…great for clearing it with the spade. I hope it will be “connected” to the earth enough…time will tell.
The tomatoes in the raised garden bed are growing vigorously and setting fruit….all is well.
