The compost tumbler is doing great! The first side has finished compost and the second side is "cooking", and getting there. I bought a second compost tumbler (I posted pictures of it on FB), and while the second side of the first one is composting, I am adding to the first side of the second one. I'll soon use the finished compost to side-dress my okra in the vegetable garden.
I started the compost about 10 April, and it was ready about 2 months later. Don't believe the hype about compost in 14 days. Two months is a lot quicker than the average compost pile. Of course, I was continually adding to it for about a month, so you could say it took about a month from the time I stopped adding stuff. I would tumble it back and forth and around every few days. It doesn't need tumbling every day. Just be sure to add enough dry brown materials, so your compost doesn't become a soggy, wet, anaerobic mess.
UPDATE, one year later: Both my Yimby tumbling composters made it well through the rough winter, much colder and snowier than usual for this area. In spring I had two wheelbarrow loads of compost, which I put in my vegetable garden before planting tomatoes, beans, and okra. Now it is August 2014, and the garden is doing great, producing a lot of beans, okra, and beautiful, juicy, meaty tomatoes. I just emptied one of the composters so I can start a fresh batch while the other is "cooking". I am pleased with the speed and quality of compost. As I stated earlier, the key is to add dry materials to wet stuff so you don't get a soggy, anaerobic stinky mess. I keep a sealed garbage can full of last fall's dry leaves and a bin full of dry grass clippings to add to the tumblers whenever I throw in a crock full of wet kitchen peelings and coffee grounds.
It's an incredibly solid machine and very clever. The assembly is time consuming but IF you were to pay for it to come in one piece it would cost a fortune.
WARNING: You shouldn't have kids around while you put it together. ..nasty words will fly out of your mouth.
1●●Be certain you make sure the vents face up when you start.
2●●The FIRST PANEL goes into place to the right of that first space and then continue one at a tine.
3●●● Most important AND frustrating, make sure the center separator fits in the panel grooves or you will have to start over.
4●●The two long screws are for the shafts to secure to the legs.
It is a great machine !!
Learned a lot from the first. Still the best Composter for any money. I wanted to address the water in the compost mix issue. Each panel has tabs at the top to fit into guide holes in the previous panel. IF each panel tab IS NOT inserted into these guide holes, they in turn become weeping holes which guide rain water in. Personally l also opted for using 100% silicone putty at each panel joint...little extra for huge return.
THE MAIN TOP is about the partition wall.
With the second unit l decided l didn't need the composter to be divided into two halves. It sounds good on paper but l can load our new unit with no divider, faster with no problem. PLUS, the partition wall is NOT a structural entity. It can be left out which also greatly facilitates assembly. In fact l even cut away the dividing bar at the door opening to make access easier both at loading time and emptying the compost when done.
This machine is designed to end up rigid as a tank. Once you made it as waterproof as possible you will not have any weight problem. It's like any other gardener project where you learn new tricks as you go. THIS has been a great addition to having a healthy garden growth without chemicals.
