Over the weekend the family had to go to a local store to get a few things for the house. While we were there we found a compost tumbler that was marked down 20 extra dollars
from its original price. It looked like the floor model was the last one left and the best thing about was it was already put together. I went to the customer service supervisor and asked the to hold it so i could come back with our other vehicle to take it home. When i got back to the store manager gave me an extra 10% off the reduced ticket price and had someone help me get it into the vehicle.
It is a lifetime 65 gallon compost tumbler that we found at a local store. This tumbler will be great for making worm food and I’m planing on building raised organic heirloom vegetable garden beds for next years growing season.
What I like about about it just by looking at it there are a ton of room in it. There is a tube running through it with a a bunch of holes in it to give it good air flow.
I took no time at all to start a new compost. I added some grass clippings, produce scraps, egg shells, ripped up paper bags. In a little bit i am going to get some free horse manure from the stables down the street from me and I am going to throw some of that in there also.
I also have a manure pile composting right now like i had last year. I am going to just let this finish composting. While i have this working ill have the tumbler working and once the tumbler is full ill start a new compost pile so I will have a good amount to worm food and compost ready for the raised beds for next year.
