I have 2 plastic ones that the county was giving away a few years ago,both are completely enclosed except for the bottom & some vents on the sides, they look like large trash cans with lids a problem arose because they were too close to some pine trees & the bottom 6 inches was full of a fine mesh of tree roots, I was able to find some 1/8 in. plastic sheeting to put under the bins. & no more tree roots.
I got excited & posted pictures a little prematurely.
I spray painted & added sand after the pics were posted. I don't know if it will actually stick well to the pvc, but I can always go with plan B-(wrap some jute twine around the pvc for vines to grip on) ..This contraption is a 'work in progress' As soon as I find my battery charger for my camera, I promise to post more pics!
Great idea and so professional looking. I just have a large pile of cow manure because I have to turn i t with my tractor.
Yours would be easier to keep wet and turn which helps decomposition. Compost is the best thing to ammend soil with I think and have been doing it for years.
Yeah your right Ruby... They'll be gone by Summer anyway! Spread a little plastic over that cool dome in the winter next year, and you'll have a bottom heated (compost) little greenhouse to tuck some tenders under!
Ah and you can also stack another good use in there - hot water. Coil a hose around in the compost pile and you'll have hot water for outdoor showers. It can get so hot you might need another hose of cold water to cool it down.
