Frugal Compost Bin

Earlier I wrote a post on building a frugal compost bin. And I'm glad I found a cheap compost method because after just one month, it was filled and we need another. This time I snapped a few photos.

For $10 we got another plastic, black garbage can.

Then I took a drill and put holes in the top, bottom, and up and down the side (about every 5 inches).

Finally, we put in some garden clippings and twigs, added a bucket of kitchen scraps and some water.

A great, cheap, and contained way to compost. Stirring the compost consists of placing the bin on its side and rolling it around....hence the need for a lid.
