We’re learning about compost this week (What We Learned Wednesday)! What kinds of systems are there and how much work is involved in each?
What I’ve Learned So Far
You could use a tumbler. You put your compostable scraps in and turn the handle a few times. I’ve heard they’re not too bad as far as work required, but they’re small, expensive, and look to me like they would overheat easily. However, if you only have a small space to work with then they might be the perfect match.
You could try using worms to do your composting in a worm bin. I haven’t yet been able to quite figure mine out; my worms die and I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I think I might be keeping it too wet. I have an older model of the Worm Factory.
