DIY Compost Tumbler

Compost Tumbler

50-gallon barrel (used for firefighting foam)
Cedar and Pressure treated scraps collected from local construction scraps
Old fence post.

I am a cheap skate and get more pleasure out of building things with found materials. Construction sites are notorious for trashing wonderful scraps. Fences are going up all over the place and this means great Cedar scraps. Spent an afternoon outside building this. It took a while because Tater made me take breaks to chase field mice that have invaded the yard (another byproduct of the local construction). Our count on field mice is...Tater with 4. Mouse Trap with 1. Hunting field mice with Tater is so much more fun then the old fashioned mouse trap and it is much more exciting.
