Extreme UCT-Ness

I feel as if I should be sayin' "What's up, doc?" while feigning interest in actually eating a raw carrot[shudder]...

doesn't this look like a Looney Tunes cannon?
(just agree with me, easier that way)

What this is, in fact, is the
UCT-9...our (my) new tumbling compost bin...I've wanted a tumbler for years, but never could convince myself to spend the money when our previous 2 compost bins were made of, first, scavenged pallets and, second, leftover bricks scavenged from beneath our old house...

But, as a special treat, we splurged & ordered this little baby...UCTie just looks like Business, doesn't he? sittin' there all solemn and stern...ready to get down to making Garden Gold...

I even dreamed about compost last night...in my dream, after only just putting in a few scraps from my kitchen, I turned the UCT over and pouring out came a darlin' little pile of beautiful black compost...sigh...a happy dream...

However, as I am blithely ignoring the manufacturer's instructions about how to create compost in the shortest time frame, I feel sure my just Toss Stuff In As It Comes Available approach will take a tad longer than I would want...

Perhaps I need another UCT to optimize my conversion time...I can see this becoming an obsession far too quickly...

You are right it does look like a cannon...Wylie Coyote beware! Does it have an ACME sign on it somewhere?

I'm thinking if this works for you I might have to have one too. I do have bins at home but I don't think they produce the way this little monster might.

My first thought was canon not compost bin...but then again, this is the south!

it's all about the journey...
