I am thinking of picking up a Gravity wagon and using it as a composter. Maybe put a lid on it and water it to collect tea and open the hopper to pull out compost? Comments on feasibility? I am in farm country but not a farmer that has used one.
I wonder how easy it will be to get the compost out, I don't imagine it will just flow out. The door WILL want to rust shut quickly if its like any of the grain bins and grain trucks I've been around that got some wet grain or fertilizer in them.
It's a neat idea. I think Bryan and Grady offer good feedback.
Compost is happier when it stays aerobic, meaning it needs to be mixed up regularly to keep some oxygen rockin' in and incorporate the random stuff on the outer edges of the pile.
So, you would need to get creative with a wagon like that. I know people using static piles sometimes put perforated piping in to control moisture and introduce air. Me, I'm lazy, and I sometimes do that. A static pile will be very densely packed though; I think you'll be in there with hand tools picking it out, unless you can dump the wagon on its side.
Can you hear that? That's my theme music. I don't know where it comes from. Check under this tiny ad:
