The Compost Factories

Here is a shot of the four compost factories I have in the back part of the driveway area. There are two large hand made wooden compost bins for creating larger volumes of fair quaility compost from generally less than ideal sources. There are also two "Black Earth" machines which are reserved for producing top quality compost from premium raw ingredients. The bins are located behind the house, and receive direct sun for at least 6 hours a day, from about 11 AM to about 5 PM or so from late spring onward. I used to have them located in a shady corner of the garden, and since relocating them have found that the black plastic bins have increased production at least two or three times faster.
