Tutorial: Burried Compost Bin

8 Jun


Scrap Digester :: the Vegetable Gardener

Just found this amazing little tutorial to turn a metal garbage can into a quick composter

I’m definitely opting for this method instead of the green bins distributed by the city. They aren’t what I expected as they are not designed to let bugs in or out… which i have learned doesnt bode well for the whole decomposition game.

Now to pick a good shady location in my itty-bitty backyard.

(i apologize to those who already read this — spelling errors and all. Posting from my cell is not as productive as i originally thought. plus now i actually included the LINK to the tutorial lol)

    I love this idea….could work even within a tiny urban yard…but the wildlife around here (Chicago) have crafty minds and human like hands…its amazing what they can undo…either with paws, or sharp teeth. Let me know if you find a truly lockable solution. I want one!

    won’t raccoons, squirrels, etc be very quick to open this and spread contents all over the place?

      there are some metal bins that allow you to lock them down, locks which only a human can unlatch. i cant seem to find any metal ones anymore in my town though to test this out
