$8 Compost Bin

I saw the idea of a wire compost bin in a Permaculture book, although they used cardboard around the inside of the bin. I have used 4 metres of wire mesh (@$2 pm) fastened together with zip ties at the overlap. I'm thinking I can always cover with black plastic if it doesn't get hot enough. At $8 it is a cheap experiment and if it does work I will create a second bin to use, whilst the first one is converting to compost.

The bin has a lot of dried leaf litter, but not a lot of green, may try to do weeding tomorrow to fix that...
