Death Star Yuppie Composter

My it’s been a while since I posted here. Not to worry, I have several in the queue, but in the mean time I thought I’d show you our new composter. I guess all those years being married to me must have rubbed off on my hubby because it was his idea to get this thing. I was fine with our happy-go-lucky pile and rot method of composting, but maybe my husband doesn’t like looking at the colorful assortment of kitchen scraps in various stages of decomposition out the back window. Anyway, this thing keeps it enclosed, turns it automatically, and aerates better than just a pile. Since it’s just the three of us, we don’t create kitchen scraps like we used to when there were six. I haven’t harvested any compost yet, but I can say it’s very warm in there. After I built this, I noted a striking similarity to the death star in the original Star Wars, so now it’s the family lingo, “Who’s turn is it to feed the Death Star tonight?”
