This is amusing:
I have a large compost tumbler which we purchased at Tractor Supply last summer. I put it right outside our back patio door so that it’s easily accessible to dump our kitchen scraps into. I have to admit, it isn’t working quite as well or as fast as I had hoped. It makes kind of a goopy slimy mess. No resemblance of “soil” in the least. I’ve been using this two ways – either I dump it in a pile and work it into a patch of crap soil, or I put a good lump into a 5 gallon bucket, add water, and let it fester for a week and use for “compost tea”. As I’m making the compost in the tumbler, I top each dump of kitchen scraps with a like amount of leaves, which are always within reach thanks to our tropical almond trees. So the wetness is a mystery. I guess I’ll have to ask hubby to drill holes in the bottom, as he suggested.
