Composting is part of Farming, even at "Almost and Acre Farm" :o)

This is the back of the "Compost"



You know when you don't hear from me I'm up to something :o), Well, We've been up to something alright :o), one season is done and now it's time for another...that  means, fresh Broccoli Rabe, Collard greens etc.:o)  we have been busy getting the  land ready...We started a compost awhile back and it's surprising how much we throw out in the food line that can go on our "Compost"...wish money grew that fast!

This was really  a "Dog House" that we found at a yard sale for $5. We converted it into a "Compost"..Cecil drilled some holes in the bottom of it for the "Liquid Tea" to drain out of (notice we put it on a skid) also the roof is easily flipped over on either side to toss the compost inside..and the little white door can be removed! Hope it works ...

You and Cecil are brilliant, Miss Ginny. I like what you did with the dog house. We do a bit of composting, too, but ours is the uncovered casual variety, mainly made up of fall leaves.

I wanted the top of the "Compost" uncovered as well, Cecil argued about "a smell"..I disagree..but will give it some time to mature..it's going to get colder and that might help..Ginny

That is so clever, Ginny! I bet that will make your garden soil nice and rich. :D
