Finally… the project

I have been working hard all winter behind the scenes putting together my dream compost system. It took way longer than I thought.  I imagined we would knock it up in a couple of weekends, but it was far more complex than that, especially as we didn’t really know what we were doing and our construction skills leave a lot to be desired.  But in our unorthodox way, we managed to come up with a pretty cool, if not elaborate place with which to rot away my unwanted organic material.

I've been doing a bit of building...

You can have a look at my grand reveal on my latest video, and if you stay tuned, later this week I’ll  share the ups and downs and crazy craftsmanship that went into the construction of the system.

Come again soon – you may get a bit of a laugh at my expense.

    1. Hi Julie. I have surprised myself. I had the vision in my head for so long and it is almost how I imagined. It will be such a pleasure to compost now. Ok now I think I am officially a bit of a nutter!
      Cheers Sarah : o )

  1. Not another video in the wind. I cannot bear it. I’ll watch with the sound off, (and it looks beautiful) but those wind buffeted sound tracks make me crazy.

    1. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the video, however it was the best I could do with the resources I had. It was a lot better than it could have been. The compost system is a real treat after years of having a pile. Have a great week.

      1. When recording outdoors, try to turn so that the camera doesn’t catch the wind. Learn where the sound input is so you can position accordingly. Experiment with it, and good luck.

  2. Oh you inspire me so much Sarah, I made a small bin the other day mine was three pieces of corrugated iron lol, maybe I will look at a better system over the next few months, thanks for the video I did have a wee laugh at your old compost pile, have a great week

    1. Thanks Jan. You made my day. I guess the best thing to do is to make do with what you have. I have mended and made do for years and decided to treat myself – although for many treating yourself is getting your nails done, or going to a fancy restaurant. It would seem I am easily pleased with compost!
      Cheers Sarah : o )

  3. That was a huge project, Sarah and you’ve executed it beautifully. I like the idea of the pretty picket fence hiding the compost, but keeping it easy to access and process. Well done!
