Here is the kind of bin that I have been using over the last 18 months. Between me, food, dog poop, bunny poop and weeds I fill a bin every 3-4 months. So, since I had these bins which weren't ready for spreading, I have been experimenting with planting into them. So far I have grown flowers, bulbs, rhubarb, and peas with great success. This year I am trying peppers and melons. Peppers and melons are a bit difficult here in Oregon with our cool nights. The compost is still holding 85 to 90 at 18 inch depth so I think the additional heat will really help the peppers and melons.
