What Composter do You Have???

Post  ArkansasSFGardener on 5/5/2013, 8:47 pm

I searched the forum but didn't see a topic that was just to show off composters.. So I made this one! I think I did pretty good today! I looked on craigslist for compost/composters, and ran across my new composter!


It is the Compostumbler2... It has two separate compartments that can hold three 30 gallon trash bags worth of media...

These things brand new are $600!!!! I got it for $$$75$$$!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited to start composting!

Now show off what you use to compost!!

No picture of mine (yet). I confiscated 4 pallets that were used to deliver some AC units to our church. Broke one down and used the slats from it on the other three. Made a simple u, and lined it with some left over chicken wire from my SFG critter cage.

Here's the composter that I've just finished building.

It's 8' long, with 4 compartments. I used to have 6 of the upright black plastic ones, where you could slide the door open at the bottom, but it was impossible to turn it over and really difficult to dig the compost out through the door. I decided to build my own so that I could make the whole front removable and I could get in there to turn it over easily. The idea is that I put fresh stuff in one end, then gradually move it over as I turn it, and I should always have ready-to-use compost in the other end compartment. I'm very pleased with it, and it seems to be working great so far!

The round holes in the front are to make it easy to slide the front panels out when I want to.

Something like this..... not real happy with my results. But in its defense, I don't think its gotten full enough and doesn't get enough sun where its at. Not ready to give up on it just yet.
