What to do? Build an outdoor composter of course! Once again I turned to Pintrest in search of a tutorial that seemed up my alley. This pin led me to Instructables. I've seen a lot of Instructables but never actually tried one before so this would be my first.
You'll have to start with a 55 gallon food grade drum. For anyone who follows me on my Facebook fan page you may remember my posting this picture.
My father-in-law was kind enough to provide us with the majority of the hardware and tools we were going to need.
We started pretty late in the evening, it was nearly 7PM which would have been just fine in say, June but in February means it's already dark.
First, my husband drilled the holes for where the hardware was going to attach.
You can really add the hardware inside and because it was dark and a bit chilly we put the aeration holes in next.
My husbands grandfather built this composter for his wife before he died. According to grandma it's probably about 15 years old.
But basically there you have it. Our (manually) spinning composter.
