I shudder to think how much bagged compost we all buy each year and I ask myself why. I suspect that for every bagful we buy we dispose of a bagful of 'tidyings' .
I would so like to become self-sufficient by making our own and have been trying for years but find it difficult. I'd like to be able to do it like 'Monty' but space and a 'tender' back prevent me. My 4 compost bins soon fill up and take far to long.
Last week I made a 'composter' using a large plastic drum that rotates on a frame. It looks and works well but any advice on how to use it would be much appreciated.
