If you have a problem with Colorado potato beetles eating your crops – a mulch layer of hay or straw might help.
Here's the little video that accompanied the building of the fancy pants compost bin I recently told you about on Goin' Lupi Facebook. Amy and I built this for her and figured it'd be a swell idea to record the experience. (Insert polite cough here.) This resulting video is of the completed project and explains a little bit about its features as well as highlights our motivation for making the choices we did.
