Green Johanna arrived


Well it arrived. My Green Johanna ordered from greencone.

Usually over £100 + delivery but we got it discounted down to just under £20 with inclusive home delivery.
Not to shabby hence hubs ordered one for me.
This is a hot composter that also takes cooked food waste.
Yep that’s right. Not to sure about that though but I guess only time will tell.
Got it open and Felix my ever faithful guard cat offered to help.
Must have been dirty in the box judging by the grubbiness of his nose lol

Once unpacked the box of course makes a great hideaway.

Hmmmmm doesn’t look like any composter i’ve ever seen.
Not going to fit much in this one LOL

Well an hour later and lots of cursing because some screw holes didn’t line up this is what we have.

Once it’s in place the first lot of compost should be ready for use within 4-6 months. Supposedly anyway LOL
After that it’s ready to use in 2-4 months.

Sooze I was told if ants make home it's because there is too much dry material in there and to add more greens or some water.

Sanbaz you're not kidding. If you go onto the greencone website and add your postcode you can see if your local authoristy is susidising it and what discount you can get. This thing is huge. Almost 1 meter across at the base.

Linclass he can keep his new bed until I need it to fill the composter LOL

I paid £46 for one last year from my local council which included delivery and a base. Its huge and thought this was good buy till I saw the price of yours. I have had to add water to mine as it got too dry.

I think we got lucky LOL
My mother in law who is only a few miles down the road has to pay £39 + delivery.
I would have orderd one for her but it's limited to one per household.
