Fill your drum composter with leaves or other compostable material, and allow your new "garden helper" to do its job. If the contents of the drum are very dry, moistening them will accelerate the composting process, but do not saturate them with water. Filling your composter with green (fresh cut) lawn trimmings or other material may cause it to generate too much heat, in which case it may begin to smolder, if the container is not rotated occasionally.
You may need to add supports for the barrel if you're using a plastic drum, otherwise the barrel may rip off of the axle. Since most compost barrels can be expensive, you may be interested in building your own for much less money and an hour of your time.
