After completing this gardening project, I decided it was time to put together a new and bigger compost bin/pile... Plus, try to make it look a little bit better, seeing it is viewable in the garden...

2014-08-31: 1 of 2 "wooden frames" pre-assembled, will help form new (& bigger) composting area

Me being me, not the brightest bulb in the pack, I thought it might be a good idea to rebuild the small section of stone wall I couldn't the previous year, before installing the pre-assembled "wooden frames"...

Great job, Mike! It looks like that will hold quite a bit of compost. That must take care of most (if not all) of your garden's fertilizing needs.

Mike,
Looks good. As you know, one can never have to much compost.
