    That looks good, Cheryl...and it looks like you've already started using it. It looks sturdy....and the price was right, eh?

    I think it may need a little reinforcement on the sides... perhaps some t-posts as Jane suggested. And yes... I couldn't wait to use it. I cleared out a spot for another flower bed just for the occasion. :-D
    And oh yeah... free is definitely in my price range. :stew1:

    Old pallets certainly have their uses don't they? A compost bin for free - now that's what I call a real bargain. :stew1:

    I remember a post here not too long ago about what to use/not use. Time to do a bit of research. And of course pass on the info to hubby and my brother "the dragon". :p

    A compost never had it so good. We learn as we go and I'm sure this beginning will morph into a fine bin that will serve you well for years to come. Like you said a "bit of research" will do wonders.

    Dragons after all are known to use magic. :)

    Good luck,

    Jerry
