I don't get it! My dogs love to get into the compost pile. I don't usually put anything in my compost that they would eat. Apparently, putrid smells make the veggies and coffee grounds much more appetizing. I blocked the dogs from jumping in the pile by stapling construction netting over a coldframe lid, placing the netting lid over the piles, and placing an iron chair on top of the lid to keep the dogs from being able to get enough leverage to break through the netting. Well, they managed push the lid to the side and crawl down into the bins. They must have put forth a lot of effort. I supposed that I will have to attach the frame to the fence as soon as the weather warms up a bit.
Indianapolis, Indiana (USDA zone 5), United States
I live in historical neighborhood in Indianapolis. I have a small yard in which I have traditionally planted perennial flowers. I love to cook and I want to eat more locally grown organic produce, so I decided (GASP!!!!) to dig up a part of my flower garden to plant fruits and vegetables. In this blog, I will share what I'm learning along the way.
