Re-Clutter your Life (#Terraintober Immersion marker Project) Part 7 – A Composter

This Part 7 of a series of a fair few posts, Part 1 (link here) gives an overview and the philosophy applied to the series – cheap, simple and fun.

A Composter

Well a environmental friendly way of dealing with kitchen and garden waste is to use a composter that also produces an excellent soil improver. Of course we had a little composter when I grew up, where else would we get the worms from when we went fishing? I remember getting the little container and a small spade and digging for worms,

Anyway for our rural composter I am looking at something like this.

Not to tough project today then, let us get on with it.

Cut some 15mm long sticks from a kebab stick/skewer add glued them on a base.
I Added some sand, it can help with the strength of the adhesion and works for this build
Build up the walls (leave some space)
I addd sand in one put some on and then add some runny super glue then add more until you are happy, the other side I filled with oregano herbs, this is the fresher side.
Then just paint the wood, it is a little bit lighter than it looks.

And that budget, well we are still at £17.93 as these were all free issue material (well bought for the monies we already spent), but we have a long way to go, will the stirrers last?

Tomorrow we are making a small pond, see you then.

/ Hope that was of some interest

    Loving this series! All great additions to a game board and can span a wide range if eras. I like the reddish color you’re giving your wood. Can you explain your painting process or point me to another blog post about it? I’m specifically interested in the Falu Red used on the buildings.
