This forum is great on making compost,but how about spreading compost? I usually sift it and put it in a wagon or a 5 gallon bucket and take it to the part of the yard that needs it the most,but now I found an eaiser way.I put the sifted compost in my fertilizer spredder,open it up to the widest amount and start wheeling it around the yard.Don't know why I didn't think of it sooner. :roll:

Go to Youtube and look how you can make your own compost tumbler,pretty much chicken wire and 2 pieces of round plywood and a handle. 8)
