Re: Reaping what we've sown...


There are many who don't care for beets. I've always loved them..even when I was little.

I'll have to check into a bin like what you're talking about, Firle, if I can find something similar. That sounds like what we need here. We don't have a huge problem with rats or mice, but we do with other similar critters, as well as groundhogs, foxes and such, so we would have to watch what we put in. usually any meat scraps go to the dogs anyway. Definitely something to consider looking for! Thanks for that suggestion. emoticon

You're welcome! I'm thinking of something like this:

Composter (Sorry for the German)

With luck, your hardware stores should have them.

Re: Reaping what we've sown...


We've always had just the two or three side by side wooden crate types that you had to turn by hand, flipping with a pitchfork in order to get it right, sort of hard on the back...but when we moved into that 'fancy' house in 2006 they had this flip/twist contraction. I never thought it would work...but it sure as heck did!
Here is the closest thing I could find to it:
Spinning Composter Horizontal LINK
Kind of pricy....but we did not pay for it...the former owners left it!

This company has a lot more.....scroll almost to the bottlom....one of them may work and be cheaper...LINK

Re: Reaping what we've sown...


Thanks for the links to the composters, Ladies!! Firle, I've not seen one like that. I like that design. Queeny, I've seen a lot of the tumbler type composters and we had actually looked at some of those.
The very last actual composter photo on that last link looks like something out of a sci-fi movie!!! LOL. We do need to see about some kind of composter, with as much stuff as we toss out into the garden, it would work better if it were turned into compost. May be something I can do with some of the money from the sale of the property in AL...whenever that happens!!! emoticon

Re: Reaping what we've sown...


I hear ya on the money thing.....
Like I said, we got lucky and did not have to pay for the twister one...just letting you know depending on whether you do a ton of composting (then the 2 or 3 wooden bins side by side that you flip with pitchfork would work best.) Or if you just do a bit of composting from food scrapes....that it works. emoticon

Re: Reaping what we've sown...


We would probably add some dry cow patties to the composter, as well as table scraps, stuff that's rotted on the vine/stalk/bush. I'd rather put that stuff into a composter than just tossing it back onto the ground. It goes back into the soil, but it would work a lot better if it were composted. We'll probably look for one late Winter, early Spring. If we do get one, I'll let ya know which one we ended up with. emoticon
