I have inherited a couple of compost bins with the new plot. Are they just gardeners toys or are they any good? I don't see them taking care of my weeds and cuttings having about a ton of the stuff I have just been digging out. I could just put the  kitchen veg waste in one of them but the other might just be taking up room. I have made a huge double compost container out of some extra large pallets I swopped for some courgettes on a building site down the road which makes more sense than these tiddley toys. As a rhubarb forcer it might be a better use for it.

I have been offered a 60 square meter plot.
I am thinking of growing apple trees, gooseberries and a mulberry tree (all fine).
1) How much work would it be to set this up do you think?
2) What would be the best way to net the gooseberries (you can grow them in pots but you cannot eat them because netting them is very difficult)?
3) Best way to keep the weeds down?
4) How much work day to day?
5) I have all of these apple trees, gooseberries and a mulberry tree in pots, can I just plant them in the ground?  They seem healthy although the trees are not productive.  Or should I buy new ones?

My main concern is netting I hate DIY and this worries me a lot.
