A bad case of pneumonia has kept me from working on any farm projects for a couple of weeks. Manure from our donkey and chickens has been piling up though and I needed a place to start composting it into fertilizer for next year's garden, so I spent the morning building a compost bin. I guess I'm not fully over the pneumonia, because building this exhausted me immensely. Still, it turned out nice, and it was completely free to build.

The manure can/should be spread directly on the garden are, no composting required, then work it in this fall or next spring.....

Nice job! I will either go this route or cedar for my next bin. The only thing I would add would be a divider in the middle so you have two piles going. One more pallet would do that. Seems that with all the air circulation, this bin might last a while.
