Garden Project #1 2010 - Completed

If you make a compost bin with timber, the timber itself gets composted in the end. That's what happened to my two compost bins under my sycamore. These had to be replaced during this summer. Now with a hint of autumn in the air - Back to School posters in the shops - I'm glad I have the new bins in place.

I thought of buying plastic compost bins but was talked out of it. I'm glad. These look better. Some bits of wood from McGeogh's here in Trim, some rough measurements, a few coats of preservative and there they are, behind the tree, beside the ferns, near the nettles and briars fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

That's the first big garden project done this summer/autumn, one more to go.
