Things I have time for now that I'm not zoning out behind the computer #1

Building a rotating barrel composter with a friend....

We took two designs we found on the internet and combined them to come up with our plan, purchased the materials, including the used plastic food grade barrel from the "barrel guy" who sets up shop on the grassy median at the exit off the highway we take to get to my friend's house (where I will be moving in August).

Am I a bad person if at first I thought you were brewing hootch in your backyard?

that's cool! pom and i have been considering such a thing! we have a big ol' pile in the back-backyard, but we're not doing much with it. seems as though an official barrel would make it easier somehow. perhaps. where on the 'net did you get the plans? is your friend finding it easy to use?

cool that you have new living arrangement plans!

Good for you. We want to start a fenced compost pile at our place. Good luck!
