We have created a compost bin with items found on the plot, the wire surround was hidden in a pile of bramble and the corner stakes were also hidden amongst the undergrowth on the plot. I am now keeping my eyes open for some large pieces of cardboard to line the sides to help keep the heat in to aid the composting process. I have collected seven black bags worth of stuff including grass clippings, my annual bedding plants, leaves from my virginia creeper but they appear lost inside this creation, so I had a brain wave whilst out shoppng the other day, I have florist not too far from me so I called in and I have arranged to collect some of their green waste on a weekly basis to add to the heap. Whilst on this thread I also decided to ask my local green grocer if I can have the grotty fruit and veg theythrow away to add to the heap this should ensure a good mix of matter to create a nice compost ready for Feb/Mar planting. I also need to collect some activator from the pigeon man who keeps his birds next to the allotment, a bucket or so should be enough to get things going.
