the above is my compost bin and porch 'garden.' i planted wax and green beans, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, carrots, onions, lettuce, strawberries- and i think that's it. i am going to see what comes and how well it comes- and decide what to keep and what isn't as successful. hopefully, i will have some nice compost for fall. i have to stir it around to see how it's doing- but it has been so cool- it isn't breaking down as quickly as i had hoped. oh well. can't be helped.
