Every gardener knows that good soil is a key success factor for a great
garden. They also understand that organic matter is the most important
component to creating great soil, and adding compost to your garden
soil is the best way to get organic matter into your soil.

As the ad stated, I was going to have compost in less than two weeks.
What a joke.
What I have found is that the organic matter sits in the tumbler all
day long and just cooks. It never really breaks down. In fact, even
if I spin the tumbler twice a day, I can produce more compost in my
standard pile over the summer than I can with my Urban Compost Tumbler.

Compost Tumbler. What they claim is all Fiction
