Compost bin

It’s beautiful sunshine today so have been on my allotment again.
I have a new compost bin! I was given some big pallets and my partner has created a massive compost bin for me. It might look a big huge but I suspect I’ll fill it. Today we started to insulate the walls to help the bin heat up. We’d saved old bubble wrap for this.
I have dug a trench too and filled it with some of the manure from the heap that arrived at the weekend.
I’ve also removed the rocket stems that had been left from the end of the previous season and put them in … my new compost bin!
