Head like a hole

Search for "composter" at www.homedepot.com and your search term will be corrected to "composite" and you will be offered various lumber items.



At www.lowes.com, your search will be corrected to "compost" and you will be offered bags of compost to buy.

Appalling. I only checked Home Depot because composters are back-ordered at the only "green" garden store in town, and the manufacturer of the model I want has had to double their factory run due to unprecedented demand.

Safeway has figured out that people want organic milk, Saturn has figured out that people want electric cars, but the biggest garden suppliers in the country don't sell composters.
