    6. Would love a compost bin. I don't usually win things, but right now I have a project entered on the Instructables Garden Contest, so I thought, hey, why not try my luck here as well.

    7. I have really enjoyed your budget gardening tips, and a free compost bin would definitely be easy on the budget and back. Thanks for giving us a chance to win.

    8. Oh boy! I would love to win this. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    9. With that design it would be easy for someone like me that has a problem getting around. Mixing the contents would be easy also. It wouldn't take up much room & with limited space it sure would work fine.

      ReplyDelete
    10. I would love to start composting!!

      ReplyDelete
    11. I've always wanted to try one of these! We have a compost bin out back, but it seems to take a long time for it to decompose. This would make it much faster!

      Thanks, Dave and thanks to the company for offering this giveaway!

    12. If I had such a sophisticated device, I might mend my lackadaisical ways and do proper composting instead of dropping spent daylily blooms that look like soggy socks underneath the plants to compost in place. I might save my coffee grounds in a fancy urn on the kitchen counter to add to my composter. I might pluck out seedless weeds to toss in there instead of dropping them on the lawn for the mower to chop them to bits to return straight to the earth. Oh, what A Proper Gardener I could become, given such a Grand Device!

    13. Who wouldn't want a compost tumbler? I'm too cheap to buy one, so we did the metal trash can method, but just don't roll them around enough. I'd love to have the real thing!

    19. We have been wanting one for quite a while. Right now we have a 'pile' in the backyard, but it will take time to amount to anything. I have to limit what goes on it due to animals. This composter looks like the ones we've been thinking about. What a nice giveaway! Thanks for offering this.

      ReplyDelete
    20. Oh, I need a new compost bin. We didn't lose our old one in the Nashville flood but the flood water was a foot or so high on it. Wondering if the compost is contaminated now.

      ReplyDelete
    21. Oh wow Dave, what an amazing give away! I've been shopping for one of these as I'm currently using a plastic tote and it's taking a beating... Fingers crossed - thanks so much for the opportunity!

      ReplyDelete
    29. I made the decision yesterday that I need to be composting given the amount of apples, zucchini and squash I have been peeling lately, so this bin would be put to great use!

    36. Hi - What a great giveaway. We have tried composting and have yet to find the best composter. This would appear to be an ideal solution. Although we live in Maine, we find many of your suggestions and efforts to be very helpful.

      We use quantities of compost so this would be a great tool.

      Thanks

    39. What a great opportunity! I love your blog - this is my second year following it and I have learned so much from you. I have an organic garden, but I have not started composting yet because it seems so daunting. It would be awesome (of course) to win this prize!

      ReplyDelete
    40. I am formally entering this giveaway! :) I was thinking yesterday how it would be a good idea if I started composting...wouldn't it be nice if one could start out with a free composter!? Thank you for hosting this!

      ReplyDelete
    41. Would love to have one, though I can't enter the contest. :p Seriously, it would be a perfect size to tuck into a corner of our apt building, just a few feet from our deck...I'll be looking for one of these, or something similar.

      ReplyDelete
    42. This bin is brilliant.
      It's designed for the family that wants to ...
      but either doesn't have the space or doesn't want the unsightly back corner pile.
      It's TWO wide mouths are easy to load - from any angle - kids could do it.
      The tumbling action can be done by the elderly - no more pitchfork, no more aching back.
      The black color attracts beneficial sunlight and heat so the breakdown is accelerated.
      It will certainly create more opportunities for people who otherwise have not started composting ... but want to.
      I'd love this - to put in my front yard to attract questions so I can encourage my neighbors to start creating 'black gold' of their own.

    43. You entered mine, so I'm entering yours :-)

    57. That composter could make my life so much easier. The kids could take turns spinning it. Imagine their surprise at what comes out. HA

    58. Count me in!

      I'd been meaning to create a simple compost pile near my veggie garden this year, but that particular chore just seemed to get away from me.

      I hate throwing all my produce rinds, peels, ends and peelings in the trash.

      ReplyDelete
    59. I would love to give it to the community Victory Garden we have started.

      ReplyDelete
    60. Nice composter that would look pretty darn cool in my garden,

      ReplyDelete
    61. I'd love to own a tumbling composter, but currently their cost is out of my budget.

      I used to compost until my suburb enacted an ordinance outlawing open piles or piles that are less than 18" off the ground. So a tumbler is my only option. I feel so guilty throwing vegetable peelings out in the trash when I know I should be composting them instead.

      ReplyDelete
    62. Hey, cool contest! I'd love to be the lucky winner!

      ReplyDelete
    63. I have to have something like this to compost where I live, and I would absolutely love to win this composter!

      ReplyDelete
    64. I can't have a compost pile, so winning one of these would make it possible for me to provide compost to my new garden next year. Great giveaway!!

    65. Thanks for the chance to win a Spin Bin Compost Tumbler...!!

      ReplyDelete
    66. Nice way to promote composting for all - even folk that are busy, busy and/or live in urban areas with limited space, city ordinances that restrict composting and neighbors that are skeptical about composting -- all of which apply to my locale.

      ReplyDelete
    67. Dave, Pick me! Pick me!~~I couldn't resist saying that and since I'm at the last of the list so far, I may be repeating what someone else said! It looks like a great toy! gail

    85. We bought the lot next door and are in an urban area. The lot had a house sitting on it for 100+ years..so needless to say the soil isnt great. I composted for a year in 5 gallon buckets trying to improve it and now have a small kind of measly garden. A 'real' tumbler would help ever so much! Thanks for the chance!

    86. My wood frame compost has seen it's last days. Almost all of my lawn, front and back, has been dug up and replaced with veggies and perennials and they need great soil. My family of 5 have lots of good scraps and we have been digging holes throughout our garden and filling them since the loss of our compost bin.

    97. A dog-proof composter is exactly what I need! What a great giveaway!

      ReplyDelete
    98. oh cool! My composter is definitely more of the "pile in a yard" variety. Something more visually attractive would be fun. My husband would appreciate the turning feature vs having to stir stir stir.

      ReplyDelete
    99. Our soil is crappy, we have ankle-menacing low points in the back yard, the husband is too concerned about vermin to have an open pile (and the yard's not fenced, so he's probably right), and we're too broke to get one of our own. So . . . fingers crossed.
