Temporary Compost Bin

Since we have to get our goat barn built and some other priority work done, building a compost bin is going to have to wait. I have a ton of food waste though and don’t want to not use it so we made a temporary bin.

First we drilled holes in a tote


Then we added some dirt


We dumped in our food trash which for us is coffee grinds, egg shells and raw fruit and veggie left overs. This is just from the past 5 days…


Then we covered it up! 


We will add to it daily and give it a stir. Once it’s full we will leave it until our permanent bin is built.

And here’s the High Plainsbaby (and her guard dog) watching…she’s so cute
