My wife started raking leaves in the back yard today. I figured that means I ought to make the composter I’ve been talking about making for a while now. I’ve accumulated 3 regular pallets and one long ‘double’ pallet in the last year.
This is also a chance to use my tools. I love my tools.
I ‘decked’ the pallet that will face the yard with some scrap wood from a shipping crate I took apart for lumber. The scrap boards where too wide for some of the gaps so I split a bit off with a hatchet – no cutting these nail ridden scraps!
I put it together behind the garage so its out of the way visually yet easy to get to.
I still need to face it and add more slats on the inside so the compost won’t fall out.
So maybe this weekend I will be finishing this off. Not sure if I will put posts in front and slide the boards down in front of the pallets or maybe put nailers on the face and then some inside and slide the boards inside.
