Hi composters.  (All 56 of you, so far!)

I’m going to be Tweeting and Facebooking my favorite composting links throughout the -Along, so if you want to catch them I’m on Twitter at @daisysiskin and our FB is Little House in the Suburbs.  We’ve got links to both in the sidebar on the right.

Hi Marianne,
If you put in lots of holes all over the can (like every two or three inches) with a large nail or a metal cutting 1/4″ drill bit, you should be okay.

We are going to use an old black tub that I had used for container gardening. It has a lid and can be rolled around to mix up the compost!

I’m so excited! My brother came for a visit, went to visit a friend of his and……he gave me some of his compost to kick-start mine!

Problem: The compost isn’t mixing up enough when I roll the trash can around. The starter compost that I just added stayed on top. Should I pour it all on a tarp, mix it around & then put it back in the can?
