Too cool! I love your Compost sign! :)

What's the colorful stuff you are composting?

I always see people's pictures of bins like yours. Apparently it works some places. I have to have 4 sides and a top on mine or all the kitchen scraps get eaten out of it by the raccoons, oppossums, etc. That means 1) they don't get to be part of my compost and 2) those guys are messy when they eat and fling stuff all over.

Thanks Guys!

Just kitchen scraps and cardboard for now. Looking to get some manure to throw in there locally.

Nice job I'm just using wire fencing.
Someone who lived here before me had a triple stall set up. I wasn't into gardening and took it down. Time to rebuild my way.
I want to hear more about rain barrels is there a spot for it on the forums?

Not exactly a spot for rainbarrels, but there is a Water Gardening section. I have two rain barrels and love them!

The next addition to my composting!! A compost tea brewer! Should be a nice little setup. Dechlorinating my water as we speak. Should be brewing my first batch of manure tea tomorrow!

I love using compost tea the plants seem to just love it. the tomatoes squash and my artichokes seem to grow a ton overnight when I spray them with it or even just a soil drench they love it...
