• Tell Your Friends

Some people ask for a new car or a trip to Europe upon receiving their college degrees, but I asked for a composter. You think I’m kidding for the sake of editorial humor? Well, this blogger would never tell a lie. I asked my significant other to get me a composter I’d seen at the local hardware store, and he presented me with my very own plant-food-maker at my graduation party. While my friends were backpacking through the Alps, I was making nutrient-rich plant food by composting my kitchen scraps.

Compost Tumbler

While I do love my composter, I’m wishing I had shopped around a little because the Jora Jk125 Composter available at Eartheasy is the Cadillac of compost tumblers. It’s two chambers keep fresh scraps separated from finished compost. No more waiting for your huge pile of compost to cook when you have plants that need some fertilizer this week. Our green thumb Design Happens readers know exactly what I’m talking about.

To be entered into the random drawing for this state-of-the-art compost tumbler, leave us a comment before 12/11c Monday, June 27.

This week’s question: What home and garden product is on your wish list right now? I’m always hinting that someone should buy me a cedar potting bench.

    I have been talking about a tumbling composer for a few years now, tried the "pile" approach last year, was doing alright til the neighbor dozed it over with his huge tractor, so the tumbling kind has been on my list since then, so much faster! ohhh i hope i win im so excited even thinking about it!

    I'm really wanting some raised beds for planting, and a composter to go with them would be excellent!

    I would love to win something like this! It kills me to see how much food is thrown into the garbage and going into the fills that doesn't have to. I am very green in all other ways but my yard is too urban and too small to have a compost pile. Winning this compost machine would make my year! I keep asking for one for christmas, but my family insists they want to give me more "fun" presents. (They get a good chuckle when I tell them compost and being green is fun) Help!!! I'm the best winner you could pick!

    ps- I think a cedar potting bench is awesome! If I had the money, I would buy one for you! :)

    I have two things I've been wanting and that's a rainwater harvesting collection system and a composter!

    Composting would relieve my angst about throwing out all that could become beautiful compost. My roses need a boost now.

    I really want a small grocery cart like the new ones at the food stores. I would like to design one with big rubber tires and rust free durable plastic. Top and Bottom bins so that I can haul my garden tools, soil and up to 3 gal container plants. I have been looking online and found mailroom carts – but that is not quite it. A grocery cart is the perfect size to fit in a garage / shed without taking up too much room and I can stuff it full! Any suggestions?

    I've been wanting some sort of composting solution for some time now – this one would get me off the hook of trying to build one myself! I'm also playing around with some DIY water feature ideas…

    This is a great composter. I've been using a homemade one where I need to turn the contents with a pitch fork. It was fine when I was much younger, but now one I can spin to mix is like a dream come true. On my wish list are pavers. I'd like to create a little outdoor room outside of the shed. It's in the shade and would be a perfect reading area.

    composter (tired of looking at the heap at the back of the yard) and composite fencing :)

    I've had my eye on some sort of wall garden for a while now. Just having beautiful greenery going vertical up a wall could be quite stunning.
