Faithfully I turned the compost tumbler a few turns
every day every few days when I was in the garden and thought about doing it.
A couple of times I peaked inside to see what was going on.
Composting was going on. I could feel the heat in there. I could see the henbit leaves and stems becoming less identifiable as leaves and stems.
For my efforts, which involved setting the compost tumbler up and loading it with garden refuse, and then turning it when I thought about it, I got this nice wheelbarrow full of compost.
And this second wheelbarrow full of compost.
And this third partially full wheelbarrow of compost.
In the same amount of time, my traditional compost bin gave me nothing.
I’m convinced. The compost tumbler from World’s Best Organic Compost Tumblers is a great addition to the garden. Thank you, Chris, for sending me this one to try out.
Truth be told, I could have harvested this compost a week or so earlier, I just didn’t have time to do so. But I wish I had because then I’d be well on my way to getting another load of compost. Love the compost! Can’t get enough of it, can we?
And I know I whined in a previous post that the compost tumbler was all black and ugly, but now I don’t even mind that so much, since I got some great compost out of it for not much effort.
But I did find a better place to put it, where it will be mosly hidden from view, behind this Snowball Bush, next to the strawberry bed.
You can’t even see it from the patio.But even if I didn’t have a place to tuck it away out of site, I’d still want it, because my, that was some nice compost. I want more!
