Since January I've been researching and looking for the right sized compost bin that will work for me.
There's a number to choose from:
|Koolscapes 50Gal Decorative Composter: Lowes Canada|
|Algreen Terra Tubmbler 7.4 cu ft - Lowes Canada|
|Algreen Terra 50 Gal Chocolate Brown Composter - Lowes Canada|
To make compost quickly, one needs water, good aeration, heat and darkness. You can always add compost accelerators, but I rather do it the hard-work way.
I've finally decided on this one:
|Get it here|
I had a composter when I lived with at home with my parents. It was a medium sized, stationary one my father built. I loved it. I was able to fill all the container planters with what was inside each spring. I won't have as much to compost, nor do I have the room for one that size.
This Dual Batch Composter has two chambers that hold about 2.5 cubic feet of space in each - that's at least 2 good sized bushels full. The reviews said folks made compost in about 5-6 weeks. At least once one batch is done, another can be still decaying away.
It comes with a year warranty and it's not that expensive, as some of the others above.
Sounds good to me. Beats having to drag bags through the townhouse to the backyard. I will update a post when it gets used.
