(This is the view from our dining room, but taken from a different angle)
Last year I retired Stinky, the store-bought composter, in favour of an elaborate apple box construction of my own. That apple box jumbo composter is what you saw burning in the previous post. This year, I have replaced it with a single upturned apple box embedded in my newly tilled garden plot--a stealth composter.
I have since removed the middle board all together and now use a heavy duty plastic apple box weighted with rocks as the lid. A lid is necessary to keep out the local crows, cats, tanuki, foxes and bears (okay, it wouldn't stop the bears, but . . . ).
