I have a nice compost pile in the back yard, next to the fence door. But it's getting colder outside, and I don't want to have to venture out far. So, I have an old planter (about 3 gallon size), with some soil in it, from a previous attempt at gardening. So, I will use this as my compost pile until spring. It has a cover on top of it, and since the soil is all ready there, it's costing me nothing. I might as well put this to use!! It has drainage holes to allow excess water from rain to escape, and needs minimal turning, maybe just a quick dig around with a hand shovel, to ensure the composting is working like it should.
