Thanks for giving people without farms a method of composting. It all helps and saves the city land fill. Better build soil than add to the landfill. Great article!

Sally, Another great article. A different idea for those of us with large hills of compost behind the barn that sometimes never get moved.

i stopped composting and felt guilty now throwing out all the "good stuff"---thanks for reminding me that it doesn't have to be all or nothing!

Thank you all for your nice comments! I wanted to offer an alternative to the many articles on mass produced compost. One size doesn't fit all!

I have done this with meat that got severe freezer burn. They say not to add meat to a regular compost pile, so I just buried in the yard and deep enough that the varmints wouldn't find it. Also, when my fish die, I bury them in the garden.
