I like the idea of using a tumbler for the first break down - what a good idea! I'm thinking the tumbler could be near the house, with the bigger pile a little further away...could be a solution as we are reloocating the pile this winter and wondering where to put it.
we have been using the sawdust toilet compost system for about two and a half years now, with the first batch having just gone in the garden. we put kitchen scraps, including fish guts, and garden waste in to the pile. we wait two years before using as well, with one turning in which dh adds extra chicken manure (dried) so that we get a second heating. there is no smell problem with the toilet in the house at present, and there is only noticeable smell at the pile on emptying days in the summer. this goes away quickly. sara
