Taking my gardening serious this year, I have tried a raised bed, and more than pleased with the results so far… iceburg lettle sprouted from seed in 3 days. So Figured I would give composting a try. But call me lazy if you want.. I didnt know if I would have time or remember to turn the drum everyday. I bought an olive barrel for $25, then used what I had laying around, bed frame for the angle iron, a couple of shopping cart wheels, a windshield wiper motor, scavenged gears and chain from a bicycle. The wood is scraps from my woodshop. I will be putting it on a timer to run for about 5 mins aday. If it works out well, I will replace the wood with pressure treated. Still need to make a cover over the motor and chain drive unit. If you would like, I will post a short video of in running.
