My Super Shovel & Terrific Tumbler

With all the stuff I put through my terrific muncher, plus whatever kitchen waste I don't put into the worm farm,
the plastic compost bins just aren't big enough and take too long to
get everything ready to put onto the garden. So I took a leaf out of a friend's book and bought a big tumbler.

It consumes a mass of stuff, and it gets turned half a dozen times a day
as Jonni and I walk past on our way out for a walk

A few weeks ago we went to the Seymour Alternative Field Days,
and the first thing I saw when I walked in the gate was this wonderful shovel

It's extremely lightweight, and I find it much easier to dish out the compost either from the wheelbarrow
or my little trailer.
