Get composting.

Since we are getting chickens and have our gardens, we figured it was due time to get a compost in. We decided to get a simple wood frame with a lid. Aaron could have built one but we decided to go the quick and lazy rout and buy one from Rona. It holds 400L and should be adequate for our needs. It was super easy to assemble and Aaron sealed it last night when he did the coop. The chickens waste (bedding, poop) will be a wonderful fertilizer and perfect for composting. Not much food waste will have to go into the compost since the chickens will eat most of the raw vegetable and fruit scraps... another great reason for Chickens.
