My compost bins are complete! We had a few hang-ups, but I am now a composter. Boy, does it feel good to reserve most of my garbage instead of throwing it in the trash can.
I stopped by a craigslist ad location to pick up more pallet wood and larger sheets of plywood while on a run to purchase some chicken wire (also from a craigslist advertisement). Husband had broken apart almost all of our pallets, and all that was left to do was purchase nails and get to hammering and wiring!
Eldest son and I spent a morning adding wood slats to the pallets and assembling the bin. I found some large
boards near the side of our house to quickly and more easily fill in the gaps on the super large wood pallet I picked up at my second free pallets stop.
We got everything in place and I attached the hinges on the bins. Although it wasn’ t my original intent, I had the openings face each other, which will make for much easier compost-shovelling when it’s time to transfer the heap to the other side of the bin.
Now on to my next task…hen preparation.
