Last Wednesday we had a great find. There was a notice on the local Facebook BSS (buy, swap and sell) that a paving company had pallets of blocks/pavers for free as they were old display stock. Well we acted immediately, with a phone call to the number provided, but even though only 5 minutes had passed we were one of 3 takers for the offer!
We were stunned at how much they gave us and decided to use the blocks for the beginnings of a 3 bay compost bin.
There are still 2 smaller stacks of paving blocks and flat pavers that are not used yet but are earmarked for part of a BBQ and outdoor eating area in the future.
I collected a parcel of worms sent by mail today. 2000 red, blue and tiger compost worms for my worm farm. It is a pre-loved worm farm that we received from a relative. Thanks Steph J
I waited until it cooled down this afternoon to place my little composting friends in their new home.

PPE gear. Did you know you can contract respiratory problems from breathing compost because of the bacteria it contains?

Set up for the future
