Garden Gourmet Composter Review

Garden Gourmet Composter

Garden Gourmet Composter

Composting bins are a great solution for many gardeners who want to be able to create a sizable amount of compost in a small area, and who don’t want to fuss with building dedicated compost piles with wood boards, timbers, and nails. The Garden Gourmet Composter is an excellent option for those looking for a simple, convenient, ground-based compost system, and many gardeners will find it to be quite useful. Made from 100% recycled materials and designed with ultra-simple assembly, the Garden Gourmet can hold up to 82 Gallons of Compost. Throw your compost materials in the top, stir it around a bit, and after some time, fresh compost will be available at the bottom opening.

It’s a clever system, and we look at the Garden Gourmet in detail below.

Jora JK270 Dual Batch Compost Tumbler

Jora JK270 Dual Batch Compost Tumbler

When it comes to composting household food and yard waste, tumbling compost barrels can be an outstanding, convenient solution for many homeowners. These systems are typically raised up off the ground for easy access, are sealed and rodent-proof, and are often more efficient in terms of time than traditional ground-based composting methods. There are two common types of tumbling composter: the single batch compost tumbler, and the dual batch compost tumbler. The dual batch composter has a few significant advantages over single batch tumblers, and we look closely at those advantages in this article.

Davis Vantage Vue 6250: Review and Information 

The Vantage Vue 6250, from Davis Instruments, is a weather station that will be a perfect addition to any yard because of its incredible feature set. Unlike more basic weather stations, the Davis Vantage Vue comes with the ability to measure almost any weather phenomenon, not just rainfall, temperature, and humidity. Most measurements are updated in less than 3 seconds, making it perfect for the savvy independent forecaster. The major takeaway from this weather station is the absurd amounts of data which it can transmit, especially historical, and looking at periods of over 25 days. If you’re a data kind of person, then the Vantage Vue 6250 may be for you.

The Davis Vantage Vue 6250 won the Best Wireless Weather Station in our Review Round Up.

Let’s take a look at some of the details.

Rodent Proof Composter Reviews and Information

Buy From Amazon

Compost bins are a great way to sustainably reduce waste as well as provide nutrient rich material for your garden. Without the right compost bin though, your efforts could go to waste as rodents and pests find their way in, eating your food scraps, making a mess, and leaving your bin ineffective. There are several rodent proof composter units available on the market that provide a solution. The best rodent proof compost bin is the Jora JK270 compost bin. It is a dual-chamber tumbling compost bin with a large 106 gallon capacity, and is entirely sealed against rodent and bug intrusion. The Jora is extremely well built, and works great. It is, however, quite pricey, so you may want to consider a few other options if you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg.

For a more information on the Jora JK270’s, see below. For our review of the Jora JK270 compost tumbler for a complete picture.

Gilmour Soaker Hose 75′ Review and Information

Gilmour Soaker Hose In Use

Gilmour Soaker Hose In Use

Home garden enthusiasts and people interested in water conservation alike can agree on one thing: home garden irrigation is tricky to get right. Taking into consideration how much water to use on which area can be time consuming, and wasteful if done incorrectly. With the Gilmour Flat Weeper/Soaker Hose, the process is all but automated for you! With thousands of tiny weep holes, the Gilmour slowly and evenly releases water throughout its length, making it ideal for many home gardeners. Due to its 75 foot length, you shouldn’t even have to move the Gilmour Soaker Hose around very much in order for your plants to be perfectly watered. Just set and forget.

This soaker hose is made from clog-resistant material so you won’t have to endure those annoying kinks in the water flow. Also, it is made from 100% recycled vinyl, so it is environmentally friendly. To learn more about this great garden tool, see below.
