Default Compost tumbler

I decided to make a compost tumbler. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out so I used recycled materials to keep the cost down. I think I got it right.

Had a composter once. Hated it. I'm wormcomposting now. Way better!

We will see how it goes. Maybe in the future upgrade to wind power. I wanted mine high enough so the wheelbarrow would fit underneath. Maybe I could figure out wind power without lowering the barrel.

I have a three bin compost pile and the worms love it. Always great to see half a dozen good size worms in a quart of so of soil. Add in some cardboard scraps and they are in seventh heaven.
