Compost bin

I built a compost bin the other day out of pallets.  I stained them to match my raised beds (I also stained the dehydrator the same color).  This is on the side of my house so it isn't such an eye-sore, but it gets easily 6+ hrs a day of sunshine.  I think it will be just fine.  If needed I will add boards on the front as the heap gets bigger.  I have a smaller plastic bin by the back yard that we throw vegetable and fruit scraps in until I get around to dumping them into the compost pile.
