A Yankee Bin

PC010009.jpgWe finished the compost bins today. We made pretty quick progress, actually.

From bags of coffee grounds to finished compost bin, hopefully brewing away, in two days. And the best part, according to my Yankee Husband, is that we didn't spend a penny. All made from scraps in his wood pile, which never seem to get any smaller.

PC010007.jpgI layered the coffee grounds with alternating layers of leaves and wood ash, and Frank hauled over some of our mulch pile with some dirt, to try to jump start it. I feel like I need to add something else, but I'm not sure what. We only half filled one bin, though the temptation to get some more from the coffee shop is very strong. Maybe next week.
