I finally got a staple gun that was tough enough and finished my big compost bin. It is 10' x 2', fitting perfectly at the side of the house - the compost bin. I am hoping with this new addition along with saving bigger sticks to burn in the firepit I won't have to put any leaves or garden waste at the curb.
At the same time, I finally made the second cold frame. Here is some mache sprouting inside the old cold frame (they are both just filled with mache for this year). It has gotten so cold so suddenly though, I just hope it has time to grow.
