Spent about 3 hrs this afternoon (when I was supposed to be working and doing my taxes) tracking down a compost bin. Who knew they were so hard to find? All I kept hearing was "nope, we don't carry them, but you can build your own."
This is where the distinction between "can" and "want to" comes into play. Yes, given enough time and motivation......I probably could have built my own. Possibly even in this century. Put in all practicality, if I ever was to get to actual composting.....I needed a plastic one (that can be sprayed down with a hose) that snapped together.
Whew, finally found one at Smith & Hawkins. It is now nestled into my backyard. I even threw some old leaves into it for good measure. Now I need to read the instructions (I am a city girl - this composting thing does not come naturally to me).
