Making our compost bins

Making a compost bin

We’re very excited about our new compost bins!  The pile of garden waste now has a tidy little home.  We used timber we got from a big old pine tree that we cut down in the garden.  We followed the guidelines from this great link ‘Making a New Zealand compost box’.  We’re filling it with mixed layers of green waste and manure.  Hopefully we’ll have some beautiful compost in a few months for the tomato plants.
