This is a pretty neat product, I've seen it in person and I have to say I was pretty impressed. You can actually have compost in as little as 10 days, which is great for anyone into gardening. You can request more info about it on their website too.

It really is a great product, I've seen it myself. Works great and is extremely durable. You can request a free dvd to see how it works on their website for anyone curious.

Nothing makes people more enthusiastic about organic living than their first successful attempt at producing compost.

Ha, I don't have that kind of money! I made my own compost bin with old pallets for free. Might not compost in 10 days, but it does the trick.

Composting is the best thing we can do for our depleted soil. But please take care to know if the peelings that you are putting into you compost ARE NOT ANY FRUITS OR VEGETABLES THAT HAVE BEEN GROWN BY FARMERS WHO USE ROUND-UP by MONSANTO. The chemicals are injected into the seeds and when they grow - the chemicals grow directly into the fruit or veggie. I have no idea how long it takes to get rid of this chemical - so please investigate what you are putting into your compost.

Looks perfect for the lazy gardener! Compost piles/bins can be made with almost anything, and all it requires is to create heat and turn the pile so that the newer stuff is on one end or on the top, and it gets turned under, etc. regularly (rotation). The DOES require a bit of "manpower" and a pitchfork.

Nancy, good advice, but on would one know if Monsanto had grown the seeds in whatever veggies or fruits one buys (or did I completely mis-understand you)? I'd assume that any farmer with half a brain would NOT use ROUND-UP near where they wanted edible stuff to be grown, however. Even slight "over-spray" will cause plants to die, so that wouldn't make sense to me.
