Jimmy, glad to hear you are feeling a little less down now and on the way up.  I will always remember when you first started and you had ten compost heaps going.  May of us go a bit wild when we start, I remember a sort of competition with Llama Mom when collecting bags of leaves. I think I gathered about 70 but she got way more than I dig. Very Happy

Thanks Jan. 70 bags wow...the most I ever had was 13. and put to good use. I have nothing anymore but my trusty little tumbler. I am working it every day and now that a bit of warmth is here I look for it to take off. Leaves from last fall along with all the kitchen waist just raring to go. I dumped a 40 lb sack of pine nuggets yesterday to help soak up some of the moisture. Today all those nuggets disintegrated into grains, now waiting for that carbon to go to work....We need to do some leveling of my area, then I will start putting stuff together..Maybe ready to do garlic in Oct...as my wife always said to me...." I'm not 30 anymore"

As my friends say to me, exactly the same thing.  And I still have a large pile of wood chips to deal with, but I rather think  I will think twice before accepting gifts like that again.

I hope the weather is OK for you, a bit beastly over on the eastern side of the continent.

Thank you CC..have 2 great cams now and no place to take pictures yet.
The area I will be putting together will need some grading and sloping.
I am planning 3 watering troughs now, probably in a U shape. They are 2 x 2 x 6 or maybe 8 or 10s.
2 feet high and will be set on 8 x 8s. Made of galvanized steel. I'll have holes drilled in the bottom for drainage, then covered with weed barrier to hold in the mix. I have one bag of super course ready to go, compost tumbler is cranking away...just loaded it with Tractor supplies pine bark pellets. It was mentioned to me that those pellets are a great brown to soak up the moisture in tumbler....They sure did soak it up, I may have put to much in...If I fill this tumbler soon, then I'll get another one. My compost bins, I think this time I will just make round circles out of 2 x 4 rolled wire from Lowe's or Home Depot. Tie ends together and they will be self supporting...Got the bug CC...
I think I'll start a thread on this project with some photo's and just add to it as time goes on.

My new beds..and they will be elevated 8 inchs off the ground
