I immediately started a compost system here and still compost today but in a closed container. The open container is quick and easy to build and work with but the vermin were attracted to the night buffet laid out before them. There are days we fill this up to the brim and can barely close the cover but when you check it a few days later it will be reduced in half. We have a large heap style compost pile but that isn’t for kitchen debris only yard waste, I rob the pile to feed the bin often.
Funny thing about this post, I wanted to talk about the simple irrigation system I put in a few years ago. That conversation will have to wait..
