Ah yes … One (wo)man’s Thrash is another (wo)man’s Treasure, right? True too, is the saying – Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder.
Doing something I haven’t done for ages, this morning I opened “Craigslist”; something just beckoned. There I saw the ad for an item I had debated with myself, to get or not to get. Someone 3 mins drive away was moving and had to sell 2 6-month old 12 cu ft compost tumblers.
I couldn’t believe it when I saw them – oh what beauty! They were like identical twins, I couldn’t get one and leave the other behind, right? So I bought both for a fraction of what they’d cost when new.
Now with my Twin Tumblers, I can leave my old revolving Compost Barrel empty because lately each time I open the Barrel to add material, there will be 2 or 3 bees, presumably scout bees, flying out. There is something mysteriously appealing about that Drum to the Bees.
There are many gardeners who say that there is absolutely no need for compost bins, drums, tumblers, etc. That may be so IF you have a garden all fenced up with no raccoons, rodents and other wildlife coming often to create massive disarray and eyesore.
Now… to go and check on my Twins showering in a much needed downpour.
