My first task was to clear away all the debris, rocks, and trash from the existing compost pile and unload the old compost from the bin. Every time I lifted a log or rock, a million little bugs went scattering around and we even saw a few spiders carrying egg sacks! Yikes!
I accomplished the clearing in two trips. Now all the debris is removed, my next task will be to collect more wooden pallets and prepare the surface area to build the new three-bin system. I’ll keep you all posted on the progress. Happy composting!
