One of the coolest things about being a garden blogger is that I get free stuff. Which sometimes doesn’t seem quite right. I get free stuff just for fretting and philosophizing about plants online. When did the world get that cool? The Scottish part of me is just in free heaven.
Sometimes, I get free stuff and I like it. Sometimes, I get free stuff and… well. It’s not so much bad as it just does not fit in with my lifestyle. The Urban Compost Bin Tumbler was one of those things. Great concept. Great for someone with limited space. Great for someone who is not lazy and forgetful… We were fine up until we got to the lazy and forgetful part..
It just so happened that at the school my kids attend, they had just built a new playground. The new playground also had several raised garden beds. The garden beds were sorely lacking in decent compost. And with that realization, the urban composter went to go live at the school. In the playground. Next to the raised garden beds. My oldest son tells me that they put lunch scraps in itÂ and that the kids take turns turning it.
Child labor. I am quickly discovering that this is a key element to successful gardening.
So this year, I was offered another urban composter. I could take it. I could try it… again. I could once more display my lack of motivation by failing to regularly turn the composter. But where is the fun in that?
I would much rather this lovely composter (with the low, low retail price of $249.95) goes to one of the people who visit my blog (hint, hintÂ – that would be you). So I worked out a deal with Organic-Composter.com and we are going to give one of you a free composter.
So, I have set up an entry form and you can go here to sign up for a chance to win a pretty nifty gadget for your garden. All I need is your name and email address and you will be entered. No,Â I don’t sell or rent or spam email addresses. I just need some way of getting a hold of you.
I will choose the winner at random after March 31st. You can enter once a day between now and then, so visit often and enter frequently!
