    Default Been a busy boy --- phase 2 .

    Just completed my new compost--- oops -- wormery yesterday.
    The old one finally had to be cut up and bagged for firewood (what was left of it) due to excessive rot.
    Recycled scaffold boards will do me proud over the coming years as will the worms when it gets re established with rotting vegetation.
    The bottom front board comes away to accommodate removal of compost.
    The whole thing sits on four concrete bases by metal rods fixed beneath at the four corners to minimise decay as much as possible .

    Next task is to conjure up a mobile phone charger using an empty st Bruno tobacco tin .---- watch this space

    It's my garden wall Jerry, about ten foot high n two and a half bricks thick with tapered /riven four foot long yorkstone coping atop, built around the seventeen sixties and has historically legitimate connections to Thomas Grey famous for his elergy. It's a grade two listed structure.
    Ps-- its' not got a dpc .

    I think i'd put a back on the contraption and pull it away from the wall then.

    Not quite Jerry, if you look closely at the bricks they're like the old cottage type -- a bit like folk live in out in the sticks .

    It's a bit more impressive than my wormery - a 50 litre tub with some holes drilled in it

    Nice work, mate.
