While shopping at Sam's Club today, I found a wonderful surprise, this:
A beautiful compost bin! This was on sale for $39.99! I looked it up on a few other websites and it ranges from 65-99.995! Woohoo!
Kira and I put it together tonight in the kitchen...and it almost fit through the outside door :) Oops.
I've been collecting scraps in a pile outside for a while now, and hopefully this will be warmer and it will start to break down a little earlier in the year. For now, I'm just collecting scraps and letting it pile up.
