Update on my small-space composting system. In my last post, I was wondering what to do with the contents of the small compost basket as it filled up. I think I have hit on a solution. When the mesh basket fills up, I empty it into a 5-gallon bucket with a tight fitting lid. I drilled 1/4” holes at regular intervals all around the sides of the bucket.
