y’all may remember this post from some time ago – when i wrote about this “rat resistant compost” method. there was some skepticism amongst readers. rightly so, considering what i have seen rats do to a trash can, but i was willing to give it a try. after eight months of adding my kitchen scarps to this pit composting system i dug them up, and this is what i found. not fully finished compost – but something that could be added to worm bins – or in my case my regular compost pile without fear that rats would be interested. no rats gnawed though the bin, so i would call it a success. i’m still looking at methods that are much faster than this for helping out with initial composting in urban areas. if you have any recommendations, let me know.
