Dalek/DIY compost bin.

Been after a compost bin for quite a while now, but didn't want to pay the £20-30 price tag. So I made one for £6.99. I bought the bin (80 ltrs) from the man whose shop sells everything... everything! Then just drilled drainage and ventilation holes in it. Done! I need to add a small door at the bottom to get to the compost, but that can wait till next year.

Next door's pears.

Winter coat.

Time to give the iron* giant his annual treatment. A quick sanding and a coat of black, hammered effect, Hammerite paint. "Any old iron*, any old iron*, any, any, any old iron*..."
