Richard has several containers that he uses to make compost to use on the garden. These are old garbage cans that he has gotten from Enoch City. He cuts them in two, keeping them 3 to 4 feet high, and then uses the top part with the lid for his container. This way there is no bottom to retain moisture in the compost. (He wants it dry) Throughout the summer he layers his lawn clippings, old turkey manure, year old leaves, and old bagged manure. He mixes them together. No water is added. This is transferred to the mound or planting areas as needed.
If you check with Enoch City they may have some old garbage cans you can get from them.
