    Default The Daleks are breeding

    For some while I have had 2 black compost Daleks plus a Heath Robinson affair of 4 pallets tie wrapped together to form a large third compost bin.

    A new neighbour recently moved in and revamp his garden.
    He was throwing out 2 perfectly serviceable large green Daleks.

    I teleported them to my garden and replaced the pallets.

    Much tidier than the pallets.

    Anyone need 4 rather decomposed pallets ?
    Tip run I think, or bonfire fodder 5 Nov.

    The amount of compost I get is amazing.
    It supplements the bought stuff and I mix it together with bought and horse muck to fill many of my big herb pots.

    Anyone else inherited Daleks ?

    Not inherited but I did buy a large Rotol bin locally for a pound on ebay.

    Are Rotol bins not space inefficient ?
    They seem to have a very wide base for no reason.

    I actively seek out orphaned daleks and rehome them on my plot. Currently I have seven (I think), plus two pallet bins.

    I am way behind have one old inherited dalek, a slatted wood bin and not long ago bought a green johanna hot composter, spoke to my local council about sales of compost they might make, no all green waste is sold to a private contractor, but would I like a free compost bin? so awaiting delivery on what is presumably another dalek
