Bonjour à tous!
We've been blessed with a wonderfully sunny weekend here at the Little White House. So I decided to go all Bob-the-builder...
Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir un weekend particulièrement ensoleillé et j'ai donc décidé de me mettre au bricolage...
You might remember the smelly old fish pond that used to be in the alley going from the back to the side garden.
Vous souvenez vous du bassin à poissons bien croupi situé entre les deux jardins?
I wanted to have the compost bin there as it's conveniently not too far but not too close from the house.
Je voulais installer là le compost, ni trop loin, ni trop près de la maison.
The box was heavy as hell and nearly didn't fit in my tiny European sized car... I nearly wished I had gone for the plastic one. Not!
They said it took five minutes to build it. Of course, it took a little while more.
La notice annonçat cinq minutes de montage... Evidemment, j'ai mis une petite demi-heure!
The screw were already in the wood board, but some of them were really askew and made the job difficult... Lucky me, I stole my dad's electric screwdriver, as he didn't know how to use it (I won't translate that, ok?).
I had wanted the compost bin to be metal and wood. Maybe because "industrial look" is so fashionable and I don't want it in my home, but it looks fine in the garden! It's better than a plastic one, isn't it?
Un petit côté industriel, non? En tout cas, c'est plus joli que ceux en plastique...
Now, I'm sorry to show you my garbage; but I'm stupidly proud of the first vegetable peels I put in it!!!
Navrée de vous montrer mes déchets, mais je suis tellement fière de mes premières pelures qui ont rejoint le composteur...
So, this wasn't the most glamourous post, so I'm going to leave you on a more girly picture!
