      I've always wanted to try composting and with the long awaited success of last year's veggie garden (and fingers crossed) this year looks even better…I would love a real composter.

    2. Tru

      Would love a compost bin. I don't usually win things, but right now I have a project entered on the Instructables Garden Contest, so I thought, hey, why not try my luck here as well.

    3. Lola

      With that design it would be easy for someone like me that has a problem getting around. Mixing the contents would be easy also. It wouldn't take up much room & with limited space it sure would work fine.

      If I had such a sophisticated device, I might mend my lackadaisical ways and do proper composting instead of dropping spent daylily blooms that look like soggy socks underneath the plants to compost in place. I might save my coffee grounds in a fancy urn on the kitchen counter to add to my composter. I might pluck out seedless weeds to toss in there instead of dropping them on the lawn for the mower to chop them to bits to return straight to the earth. Oh, what A Proper Gardener I could become, given such a Grand Device!

      We have been wanting one for quite a while. Right now we have a 'pile' in the backyard, but it will take time to amount to anything. I have to limit what goes on it due to animals. This composter looks like the ones we've been thinking about. What a nice giveaway! Thanks for offering this.

      Oh, I need a new compost bin. We didn't lose our old one in the Nashville flood but the flood water was a foot or so high on it. Wondering if the compost is contaminated now.

    7. Jen Caputo

      Oh wow Dave, what an amazing give away! I've been shopping for one of these as I'm currently using a plastic tote and it's taking a beating… Fingers crossed – thanks so much for the opportunity!

      What a wonderful giveaway!! Our compost heap is on the ground right now (uncovered) and I've been trying to figure out the best way to house it out of reach of both wild and tame critters on our farm. I look forward to checking out your blog more. Found you via Rowena.

    9. Susan

      I made the decision yesterday that I need to be composting given the amount of apples, zucchini and squash I have been peeling lately, so this bin would be put to great use!

      Hi – What a great giveaway. We have tried composting and have yet to find the best composter. This would appear to be an ideal solution. Although we live in Maine, we find many of your suggestions and efforts to be very helpful.

      We use quantities of compost so this would be a great tool.

      Thanks

      What a great opportunity! I love your blog – this is my second year following it and I have learned so much from you. I have an organic garden, but I have not started composting yet because it seems so daunting. It would be awesome (of course) to win this prize!

    12. mrshester

      I am formally entering this giveaway! 🙂 I was thinking yesterday how it would be a good idea if I started composting…wouldn't it be nice if one could start out with a free composter!? Thank you for hosting this!

    13. nancybond

      Would love to have one, though I can't enter the contest. :p Seriously, it would be a perfect size to tuck into a corner of our apt building, just a few feet from our deck…I'll be looking for one of these, or something similar.

      This bin is brilliant.
      It's designed for the family that wants to …
      but either doesn't have the space or doesn't want the unsightly back corner pile.
      It's TWO wide mouths are easy to load – from any angle – kids could do it.
      The tumbling action can be done by the elderly – no more pitchfork, no more aching back.
      The black color attracts beneficial sunlight and heat so the breakdown is accelerated.
      It will certainly create more opportunities for people who otherwise have not started composting … but want to.
      I'd love this – to put in my front yard to attract questions so I can encourage my neighbors to start creating 'black gold' of their own.

      Twinkle, Twinkle little star, how I wonder how to win, Way out in my garden space, Like a diamond in the rough; Twinkle Twinkle compost bin, how nice it would be to win. Love this gardening blog. I am so glad I found it since my move to middle TN!! Thanks.

    16. kokomolady

      Thanks for offering this awesome giveaway and I'm so glad composting is making its way into the mainstream.

      Should I win this it's going straight to my sister who wants to compost but doesn't want the pile in the yard.

      Count me in!

      I'd been meaning to create a simple compost pile near my veggie garden this year, but that particular chore just seemed to get away from me.

      I hate throwing all my produce rinds, peels, ends and peelings in the trash.

    18. Amy

      I'd love to own a tumbling composter, but currently their cost is out of my budget.

      I used to compost until my suburb enacted an ordinance outlawing open piles or piles that are less than 18" off the ground. So a tumbler is my only option. I feel so guilty throwing vegetable peelings out in the trash when I know I should be composting them instead.

    19. Joy

      Nice way to promote composting for all – even folk that are busy, busy and/or live in urban areas with limited space, city ordinances that restrict composting and neighbors that are skeptical about composting — all of which apply to my locale.

    20. Gail

      Dave, Pick me! Pick me!~~I couldn't resist saying that and since I'm at the last of the list so far, I may be repeating what someone else said! It looks like a great toy! gail

    21. beth

      I love this compost bin! It looks so easy to turn and the dark black plastic is great for absorbing the heat. I've been looking for a bin that will fit in the allotted space in my yard. I think this one will work perfectly!

    22. Missy

      This would be a huge upgrade from our current 5 gallon bucket system which may or may not be baiting the coyotes into our neighborhood… (shiver). We'd feel very lucky to win this!

    23. Brian

      I enjoy your site and all the info you provide. There are answers to all sorts of questions.
      This composter would be an excellent way for me to get started on composting!

    24. tannawings

      We bought the lot next door and are in an urban area. The lot had a house sitting on it for 100+ years..so needless to say the soil isnt great. I composted for a year in 5 gallon buckets trying to improve it and now have a small kind of measly garden. A 'real' tumbler would help ever so much! Thanks for the chance!

      My wood frame compost has seen it's last days. Almost all of my lawn, front and back, has been dug up and replaced with veggies and perennials and they need great soil. My family of 5 have lots of good scraps and we have been digging holes throughout our garden and filling them since the loss of our compost bin.

    26. element321

      Great contest.

      I have multiple compost bins and are over flowing with garden and kitchen waste. We are in need of a new compost bin. I have been looking this tumbler for a while now. I heard great things about this tumbler.

    27. mr_subjunctive

      Our soil is crappy, we have ankle-menacing low points in the back yard, the husband is too concerned about vermin to have an open pile (and the yard's not fenced, so he's probably right), and we're too broke to get one of our own. So . . . fingers crossed.
