First compost heap - how does this sound?
I've just taken on an allotment, and one of my first jobs is to build a compost heap. As you're the experts, how does this sound for the design of the heap itself?
I'm planning on clearing an area of weeds and using's an old baby's cot for the main frame.
I'm going to lay some chicken wire between the cot and the ground, and wrap the cot in wire too to stop the rats getting in.
Is there anything I've missed which could help?
