Plans for the re-design of the garden are going well (if you ignore the whole a) huge demands on my chainsaw b) saving up for all of this c) several tonnage of top soil that needs moving d) fact that we've not actually done more than sweep the leaves up so far).
But one thing that got me thinking was what kind of compost bin is best for a garden.
I used to have a Dalek in my old garden but I wasn't there long enough to harvest from it so I've no idea if it would have proven to be a huge success (I mean it was for the family of rats who lived in it despite my throwing carrots peelings onto their little heads in the morning...) There's a Dalek in the current garden and two somewhat rotten wooden frames full of grass clippings and all look quite fresh in terms of prospective compost.
In your eyes, what makes a really good compost bin? Is plastic fantastic or should I be getting the wood saw out and making wooden frames similar to the one Clueless put up recently for us to marvel at the fantastic handy work.
Ideas tips pictures and advice would be gladly appreciated!
