My new compost bin
Category: my greenhouse | Posted: Sun Aug 24, 2008 6:17 pm
I went with a differant photo image site so lets hope this works.
This is my new compost bin. it will be able to turn by a crank on the side. The picture looks blue but it is actually a purple bin. (My fav color)
The commercial greenhouse will be set up this fall when we take down the garden. picts will be later of the construction.

Someone had a greenhouse frame for sale. They only used part of it but then later took it down. Its 18 ft wide by 48 ft long.(about like one of the commercial greenhouses). I know this sounds huge. But this is going to fit perfect into our vegie garden space. Hubby talked the lady into throwing in a spinning compost bin (about like Toni's) with the price of the frame. So I also have a bin now too-just needs a little work. How exciting.
The plan is to put the frame up in the garden so that next year when I start my seeds, we can put them right into the ground around the first of april. Many Amish people grow vegie's in the ground inside a lg greenhouse and have the best luck.
We still have to buy the heavy plastic covering and will have to get some help assembling. But when its finished, I'll take picts. We do want to get this assembled and up hopefully by the end of fall so it'll be ready to go by next year. Wow, when things just come at a good price sometimes you just have to take the plunge. What plans I can start making for next year. Its like having a new slat. The ideas could be endless. I'll use your ideas too if anyone wants me to experiment. I LOVE GARDENING. :)
