Puts a new spin on composting. This would make it easier to turn the compost.

How to make your own compost tumbler. Compost made in a compost maker like this is ready in about four weeks. Make sure that you only fill the barrel about 3/4 full to allow the materials to tumble when you turn it. Also make sure that you wet the material when you add it to the barrel.

Compost tumblers are awesome. They create a compact, easy-to-turn space for your discarded food scraps and yard waste that will produce rich compost. A simple one is a 50-gallon drum (plastic being easier to work with), that you cut a door into the side (to load and unload it), then put hinges on the door. Drill some ventilation holes into and then you simply roll it around your yard, as needed. You can also build a wood frame so you can turn the barrel by hand, the drum turns your compost.

I have always wanted one of these plastic barrel composters.....finally simple plans I can do myself!

Must be done. Current compost bins are attracting vermin and dogs enjoy digging in them too much.
