This is my compost bin which is full to the brim. Usually it is hidden as the small Tree Fern rests on top of it. As I put the cuttings in in layers I add some compost accelerator which also speeds the composting allowing me to reap new compost at three months intervals. Keeping it covered lessens the flies, but the compost might dry out therefore watering it is needed at times. Sometimes when I dig it out I have a spade full of worms to add to the garden soil.
