So, I cut the grass this weekend and bagged the clippings. I put them on top of my garden scraps and then the hubby saw it and went ballistic. I told him I was establishing my compost pile and he abruptly told me to order one instead, that my pile was only going to stink and draw rodents. I know the truth, but would also like to have a tumbler, so now that I have paved the way (and made room in the budget) where is the best place to buy a tumbler and what kind do you prefer?

I have two types for my compost. One is a green metal barrel on a stand that I got from my mother. She got it a couple of years ago, it works well and has a handle crank to spin it. I also bought one at tractor supply. It's black plastic, but doesn't work as well. The grass, etc, gets lumped up and you need to take a garden fork to it to break it up. I should have lots of compost for my larger garden next year. Laura
