Here’s a funny story about our compost pile.
We don’t have an actual bin, although we intend to someday. We just have a pile.
We had some trees removed and asked the tree guys to chip them for us. My husband told them to leave the pile of chips at the edge of the woods next to the compost pile. We were out checking out the work after they left and I asked “where’s the compost pile?” Turns out they dumped the chips ON TOP OF the compost pile.
Oh well. We started a new pile and have been working our way through the pile of chips. We can’t wait to see the great compost that’s going to be waiting at the bottom for us.
Our new compost pile has one addition, which is a ring of hardware cloth running around the perimeter. That’s sort of like a bin.
It’s there because we came outside one day to find one of our dogs smack in the middle of the pile, happily munching away on all the table scrap snacks we had thoughtfully left out.
Now, for those of you who compost, what are you using as a compost bin?
