Compost - rethink what we have!

My compost heap has been getting very untidy and is not breaking down fast enough. Partly its cos the weather is so dry but also I am not layering properly. So yesterday I went to the garden centre to price a compost bin...but at R700 - R1100 I was going to make another plan.

We recently rehoused our chickens to a much larger permanent coup so we have the first movable one just hanging around. My son suggested a small modification to it and then we can contain the compost.

Transferring the compost was a huge horrible job, but here it is - and it cost me nothing!
