Minutes later, I realized it would be perfect for a compost sifter. Although the holes in the basket are about 1″, I knew I could find a smaller screen to put inside.
I didn’t even have to leave the house…my basement wall has a bunch of exposed 1/4″ chicken wire, so I knew this was the ticket. Be careful cutting the stuff though, it’s sharp!
While it isn’t fanciest design in the world, I think it will work for sifting through small quantities of compost.
