The Husband had to re-build our compost bins this year. After 6 years, they were starting to fall apart.
The first part of the task involved removing all of the compost from the bins. Our compost was in 2 phases: ready to be used, and still decomposing. The corgis were very interested in the latter pile of compost. Maggie and Ziggy (aka Maggie's "mini-me") loved it especially.
First they loved to roll in it. This made for 2 very stinky dogs with brown paws and bellies. Since the dogs sleep near my side of the bed, this made for a few stinky nights.
The rolling lasted for a couple of days. Then they found something even more fun to do: EAT IT! Yum.... What Cardi wouldn't want to eat partially decomposed produce and plant matter? I can't answer that question, as Denzil joined in this habit, too.
I stood some garden fencing around the pile, but they just shoved it over.
The good news is that nobody was the worse for the wear, and their stools were super-firm and easy to pick up.
The Husband finally decided not to wait for the weather to get better (it's been wretchedly wet here) and finished the bins on a day when it was merely pouring down rain (vs pouring down rain with wind, thunder & lightening).
Here they are:
The Cardis don't get to sniff, roll & snack anymore, but the humans are very happy!
