compost

we started composting a few weeks ago. its kinda fun and interesting to see the compost forming. a bit of a challenge too, at first put too much scraps and got lots of bugs, but after balancing out with lawn clippings and leaves, the bugs are gone and it doesnt smell bad at all. we’re hoping to start a garden soon. y’all have any tips for composting?

the compost tumbler we got at home depot is the YIMBY brand one. it’s decent, and good for urban smaller backyards. it has a sliding lid cover, and has two sections, so you can start a new batch while the other side is composting. it comes with the stand that the barrel can rotate on, but it doesn’t have a rotating crank handle, you gotta spin the barrel directly (not a big deal). check it out here Yimby Tumbler Composter
