Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Soilsaver Composter giveaway

Every backyard gardener needs a compost pile. But who wants a big, stinky mess to deal with? And, further, if you live in an urban area or are short on space, who wants to annoy the neighbors or be annoyed with a pile of kitchen and garden waste attracting bugs and critters?

In order to remedy that problem and jump start you in making your own compost gold, today's giveaway for Urban Homesteading Giveaway Week is a Soilsaver Classic Composter.

This composter promises that you'll be producing rich organic dark humus in 6 to 8 weeks from kitchen and garden waste. In addition it:
  • Works in all climates and can recycle up to 30% of household waste, helping reduce landfill cost, hauling cost and curbside pickup
  • Is made from 100% recycled material. Locking self-watering lid keeps varmints out and allows for easy entry
  • Has a heavy, dark wall construction that helps produce heat which helps the bacteria and micro-organisms breakdown waste to produce rich soil
  • Has two sliding doors allows easy access to soil.
  • Includes a free composting guide
  • Dimensions: 28"W x 28"D x 32"H
This composter is easy to use as well as easy on the eyes. Just add kitchen scraps and garden waste to the top of the bin and remove finished compost from the bottom of the bin. Turning is optional (if you want faster composting).

How to enter
If you are interested in entering the random drawing for this composter, please add your name to the comments of this post. You have until midnight PST this Friday, February 25th to enter. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!

Make sure you check out the other giveaways going on this week:

Win a Raintree Nursery $50 gift certificate
Win a swanky looking rain barrel
Win the books, Keeping Chickens and Canning & Preserving

Love composting or chicken feeding, whatever the case may be.

Tree Huggin Momma said...

As a true Urban Homesteader I had to give up my compost pile when my neighbors started complaining. It didn't smell, and we had no rodents, but they all claimed to be seeing rats. Mind you no evidence of rats, but hey that's the way it works in the City. I prefer direct compost methods to piles, but I would be willing to give a composter a try. :)

Joanna said...

Our compost pile attracts raccons, and I'd rather not have them around- this enclosed solution is great!

Shawn Burkett said...

What a great giveaway!

Catherine said...

This would be great. It would be more attractive than my "compost trash can" we use currently. :)

DramaMama said...

Our homemade barrel composter bit the dust last fall. We are looking into new, sturdier ones...this looks interesting...

Jacky Hackett said...

Composting is on my list to get start this year.

That is a great giveaway. Since the squirrels have eaten large holes in my stacking composter, and are trying to do the same to the spinner, I could use another one. Sigh me UP!

I've composted a lot over the years but I've never tried one of these self contained units.

This is perfect! :) I would love to have something like this.

Tangee said...

OMG I've been wanting to get a compost for quite some time now...but ya know, if I were to win (setting the intention that this manifests), I would give it to my mom because she's been wanting to learn about composting and I think this would steer her in that direction (along with encouraging and inspiring her to grow her garden finally and start to live a more organic, healthy lifestyle). Thank you for offering this giveaway! :o)
Warm wishes,
