First time posting in the composting forum, I think.
I am currently using an old plastic garbage can for a compost bin. It is a BEAR to turn that pile! I have to literally pour the entire thing out, mix it up, and shovel it all back in (which kills my back).
I'm thinking of constructing the wood and chicken wire compost bin (for which I need construction plans). However, I've seen those compost bins that are on stands that you turn - the bin is actually up in the air and you just 'flip' it around (which sounds like fun for the kids). I had someone offer to make one for me...for 300 dollars.
My question to you all is - do any of you have construction plans for me to create a standing-up compost bin? I haven't turned my current pile in several weeks because of my back; I fear that most of the pile is anaerobic at this point.
