In our municipality, it is now illegal to put any plant matter or recycling in the garbage. Each home was given a composter. Now we have started composting. In the city, we had a green bin program, where they came and collected the rooting food every 2 weeks. We have never had to upkeep a composter before.
Phod sniffing around the composter.
Day 2, the raccoon we are calling Constance, opened the front door of the composter and dragged everything out. (We know it was a racoon due to the paw prints on the door).
End of week 1, something, we assume Constance (and hope it is), actually lifted the composter up by the back (it is nailed into the ground, but it is rocky so the back is not as secure as we would like) and dragged a lot of the food out the back. The Man actually had brought us all out for an early morning pee when Constance was up to no good. We were not allowed to go and catch her/him.
To try and keep Constance out the people have put dirty on the back. They have put a rock on the top. They have put a layer of dirt inside. They have sprinkled half a bottle of Cayenne pepper inside and around it.
We feel like there may be an ongoing battle between Constance and the people! We are putting our money on Constance.
