    1. 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. Cool giveaway. I currently just use the old pile method but this would be Nice so I will enter.

    3. i always enjoy your blog, and now you have this neat giveaway! i love tumbling composters! i am a composting geek and want to try every type.

    4. 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.

    5. I have really enjoyed your budget gardening tips, and a free compost bin would definitely be easy on the budget and back. Thanks for giving us a chance to win.

    6. Oh boy! I would love to win this. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    7. 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.

    8. I would love to start composting!!

    9. I've always wanted to try one of these! We have a compost bin out back, but it seems to take a long time for it to decompose. This would make it much faster!

      Thanks, Dave and thanks to the company for offering this giveaway!

    10. 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!

    11. Who wouldn't want a compost tumbler? I'm too cheap to buy one, so we did the metal trash can method, but just don't roll them around enough. I'd love to have the real thing!

    12. Woooo… a tumbling compost bin would be so awesome to win.

    13. I would love a compost tumbler. My current compost bin is OK, but slow.

    14. Ah! Composting, how I love thee. Let me count the ways..,

    15. Great give-a-way Dave! Good luck to all!

    16. Would love to win this! Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

    17. 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.

    18. 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.

    19. 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!

    20. Thanks for hosting this giveaway! Please enter me, also! Thanks Dave. ๐Ÿ™‚

    21. What a cool compost-er.. would love one for my garden.. :)!

    22. 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.

    23. I'm drooling over here… Please enter me!

      irrelevantheart AT gmail DOT com!

    24. Wow, looks like a great composter. Nice to find a new blog to read as well (sent here via rowena). Hello!

    25. Oh, boy, would I love this composter! I'm just operating with a Rubbermaid bin for now.

    26. YES!! Please! I've been dying to get one of these since my 5 year old is learning how to compost in school.

    27. 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!

    28. would love to enter but the UK is slightly outside of your postal limit. Anyway enjoying the blog.

    29. I so need a compost bin!!

    30. What a great way to get my new garden growing! I'd really appreciate winning that bin.
      Thank you.

    31. Was just talking about composting this weekend!


    32. Would love to win this!

    33. Ooh yeah sign me up! ๐Ÿ™‚ That looks like a great giveaway to me.

    34. I'd love to win that compost bin. I'm trying to compost more and more things and the critters keep getting into my compost pile behind the house. ๐Ÿ™

    35. Holy smokes! Look at all these comments-looks like a popular give a way Dave!

    36. 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.

    37. Thanks for the opportunity! This would be really handy in developing great compost for our raised bed gardens.

    38. Wow, looks like a great composter! Thanks for the opportunity!

    39. 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!

    40. I am formally entering this giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

    41. 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.

    42. 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.

    43. You entered mine, so I'm entering yours ๐Ÿ™‚

      Good luck!

    44. Love your blog… and this compost bin! Thanks for offering this giveaway!


    45. Thanks Dave and Thanks Clean Air Gardening for having this contest!

    46. Our garden loves compost.

    47. I want! I want! Do I get extra points for begging?

    48. Me please

    51. Awesome! I've been wanting a compost bin forever!

    52. My partner and I have just started serious gardening this year – we've got a compost pile, but I'd love to try one of the spinning bins!

    53. Oooh I would love to have a real spinning compost bin! Currently my compost bin is a garbage can I roll around!

    54. I just attempted building my own but it's already falling to pieces, I would love a real and easy composter!

    55. Thanks so much for the opportunity; I'd love to have this fabulous compost bin.

    56. We need one of these in my family so consider me entered in the contest. I love Clean Air Gardening, w00t!

    57. That composter could make my life so much easier. The kids could take turns spinning it. Imagine their surprise at what comes out. HA

    58. 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.

    59. I would love to give it to the community Victory Garden we have started.

    60. Nice composter that would look pretty darn cool in my garden,

    61. 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.

    62. Hey, cool contest! I'd love to be the lucky winner!

    63. I have to have something like this to compost where I live, and I would absolutely love to win this composter!

    64. I can't have a compost pile, so winning one of these would make it possible for me to provide compost to my new garden next year. Great giveaway!!

    65. Thanks for the chance to win a Spin Bin Compost Tumbler…!!

    66. 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.

    67. 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

    68. Very cool! Thanks for the chance, I hope I win! ๐Ÿ™‚

    69. It's tricky for me to reach into the composter I have with a shovel, so I'd love to try out this tumbler model.

    70. Blue_Hydrangea

      I need and want this…please, pretty please.

    71. We would love to have a composter. The soil here is so heavy, and a lot of it is fill. And of course, we have so much "extraneous" vegetable matter. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    72. Thanks for the opportunity to win a composter!

    73. Wow, what a great giveaway. Of course I would love a composter. What every gardener wants.Thanks for the opportunity.

    74. I started compost piles when I bought my first house two years ago, but haven't tried any bins or tumblers, except for the indoor worm bin.

    75. A co-worker was making me a compost bin, but not sure what happened to that project. This would be an awsome addition to my home garden. Also, great site, great tips!

    76. I would love a composter!!

    77. Would love to compost it seems to be the "in" thing to do, and having something like this would make things easier and cleaner

    78. I would love to have a compose bin.

      Have a great day!

    79. Gee, Dave, since the winner will be drawn at random, I needn't wrack my brain to provide your readers with anything of intelligence or insight. Thanks for taking the load off!

    80. Love your blog! And thank you for the opportunity to win the composter :o)

    81. 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!

    82. 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!

    83. wow, would love to have a compost bin,we bought our first home couple of months back, can't afford it now.your site helped me build a raised bed ,thanks

    84. 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!

    85. I would LOVE a composter!!!

    86. Pick me!!

    87. We bought the lot next door and are in an urban area. The lot had a house sitting on it for 100+ 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!

    88. 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.

    89. I have been looking for a good compost option for our small back yard. This looks like a great option!

    90. Compost Happens, and I happen to need a new Composter! Great stuff on your blog! Read it alot, first time to post!

    91. A compost bin would be awesome. We just bought a house so of course we need a compost bin. ๐Ÿ™‚

    92. My worms would love it!

    93. What a great idea! Thank you!

    94. I would love this composter! Glad I found this site while looking for ways to propogate oakleaf hydrangea!

    95. 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.

    96. I would definitely put this tumbler to good use!

    97. This composter appeals to me because it looks like it would be easy to turn. I like it. If I had this one, I would make a video and show others how easy it is to use.

    98. We are in serious need of a compost bin at our home. We have so much that we waste that we'd love to put to good use in our garden. I want to win!

    99. A dog-proof composter is exactly what I need! What a great giveaway!

    100. oh cool! My composter is definitely more of the "pile in a yard" variety. Something more visually attractive would be fun. My husband would appreciate the turning feature vs having to stir stir stir.

    101. 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.

    102. I would love to get one of these for my Mom. She needs a composter that's easy to turn.

    103. I'd love to win this. I am a super gardening beginner, but this would get me off to a great start!

    104. Awesome contest and great blog. Here's hoping I win!

    105. sure is purty!!! this would be great for the city!

    106. What a great product! I'm in need of a new compost bin and this looks fantastic.

      starterfish (at) hotmail (dot) com

    107. Looks like a wonderful composter to help a budding gardener like me.

      Thanks for the fun giveaway!

    108. What a wonderful giveaway! I have been enjoying all of your garden layouts as I research companion planting. Thanks again!

    109. I'd love to add this my garden! Thanks for having the contest!

    110. Ok, new to gardening and i could use this! thanks!

    111. That's the best darn composter I ever did see! It'd look just dandy in my backyard!

    112. Well, cool! My husband has been salivating after one like this, but it's a bit pricey. Happy I got in under the wire–thanks to a link from Mr. Brown Thumb. Thanks for hosting this!

    113. Thanks for the chance to win!! I would love to put this to good use!
