Allotment - creating our own compost Dalek

The 'old' bin, then the pit dug for the new bin with gravel etc in the bottom (and a layer of wood ash from our bonfires as we didn't have charcoal) and then the new bin in place with its holes drilled in the lid but without its bubble-wrap insulation.

Now we'll see what happens with the kitchen waste we put in it ...

Thanks Andy for all the tips.

It'll be interesting to see how it does. I have a dalek, but I don't dig pits or holes, or insulate it.

Best of luck! An expert we had talk at our Horticultural Society said don't bother with the lids but I still put mine on.
