I picked up a couple 55 gal (plastic) drums with screw on tops. My plan is to use one for rain water collection and the other for a rotating compost bin.
Started doing some research on composting and I see a 3’ x 3’ x 3’ pile seems to be the ideal size for cooking compost.
Will a drum really work? Any advice…I’ve seen…drill lot of holes…don’t drill any holes….turn daily….turn weekly…cooks in weeks….cooks in months…?

I have one of those drums on a mount from Jack's Solar Composter. If you look at the way it is set up you can see how easy it is to build yourself. I have a cedar wood frame on mine and the pivot rod is made of rebar.
Here is the link. The pics might be old because the black drums are not shown.
