John took the scraps and some water out to the composter this morning and discovered that mice have moved in! There was a dead one on the top and one that ran out of one of the holes as he poured the water in.
As you can see the composter is well away from the house. I had thought about moving it closer for the winter and now I'm glad that I didn't. I have a seperate pile nearby for everything that won't fit and won't attract critters.
If mice have moved in am I doing something wrong or are they to be expected if you add kitchen scraps to the mix? Should I stop adding scraps for the winter? Help!!!
I guess I should have joined the book club a month earlier. :(
