This morning, the kids and I connected the sides into a 4' x 8' rectangle, and replaced the old rotted out box with the new one. It was a pretty simple project.
Next, I built two compost bins from wooden pallets. I got the pallets last fall from a local business that was throwing them away. Tim and I connected them with smaller pieces of wood and some screws. The front pallets will be attached to the other pieces with old electrical wire. That way, they can be easily removed so the compost can be turned.
Overall, it was a good day.
