1. Turner/ Aerator
2. Hand Cultivator or Fork
I touted my new-found love of screening in a post a few months ago. Screeners give you a BEAUTIFUL end product and are relatively easy to make.
However, if you just dig finished compost into your garden, you can save yourself time and money by skipping the screener.
5. Kitchen Collector
Is a bucket a tool?
Regardless, its making this girl’s tool list. A bucket for collecting kitchen scraps is so helpful and acts as a great reminder to compost.
Of course, an old margarine tub, kitty litter bucket, or any lidded container also works.
6. Compost Thermometer
I can see how it might be fun to measure the temperature of your pile, but really it’s not essential. You know your pile is hot when it starts to reduce in size.
Buy yourself a good wheelbarrow, you won’t regret it.
Are there any tools you use when composting that I missed?
