Compost fit for a Skunk
When I first started composting, I didn't have a clue how to do it. I picked an area in the back of the garden, and just started dumping what ever I thought would compost there.
Being a veggie lover, I had lots of vegetable scraps. I also had lots of egg shells and coffee grounds (thanks to my friend who was a waitress at a local restaurant)
Every time I headed out to the "pile" I would notice the scraps spread out farther than the pile. I figured some animal was having a nice treat, but I thought, Oh well,this is an easy way to "turn the pile" which I never got around to doing.
Till the biggest Skunk I'd ever seen found it's way into my breezway, via the open garage door. I guess it figured scraps weren't good enough, and had now graduated to eating out of the cat dish!
My husband convinced me that if I wanted to do the compost pile, I should at least cover it with the dry material, and keep it turned. At the time, I just gave up... not wanting any more uninvited guests to my house!
