This is my first attempt at a compost tumbler.

The post are made of 2 - 2X6 pieces of wood,

making it a 4X6 posts (each side)

The post are not treated or painted yet, but it is functional

Each post is cemented into the ground.

Every thing used to make this Compost Tumbler

was recycled, or what was at hand!

Peace

I never use the seeds strips, or should I say, never buy them.

My seed comes up just fine.

Here is a cool video, on how you can make your own seed strips.

Enjoy, this is too cool!

Hey Paula, I just started a worm bin.  I also started with the Rubbermaid bins.  How do you harvest the worm castings?  My husband put a faucet on the bottom (like the ones that you buy with the trays.  If you could explain the process to me that would be great.   I am feeding them twice a week and they look happy :)
