It has come to my attention that I Really, Truly, Honestly, FerReals need a compost heap.
This poses several obstacles.
First: where to put the darn thing. I cannot put it in my front yard, since being in Small Suburbia, that counts as Rather Unsightly. So the compost heap MUST go in the back yard.
Onto the subsequent obstacles...
Ideally, the thing needs to go toward the back of the property, since I am convinced it is going to smell, despite various websites telling me otherwise. Part of my brain is whining that it'd be so much easier to have by the back deck for easy disposal of table scraps and egg shells.
Another problem is BlazeDog tends to do things like roll in smelly things, tip stuff over, dig, flail, kick dirt around, etc. She's kind of a goofy kid.
Since I'm not doing a huge garden (yet), I figure the 65 gallon bin from Tractor Supply will probably suffice for my needs.
I'll have The Architect drive us up to the Tractor Supply to nab it.
...I'm sure I'll have tons of future stories about my dogs getting into more fights with possoms over this thing...
