keeping Penny away from buried bokashi compost

Once again I've buried some Bokashi compost in our back yard, which means it's in the part of the garden accessible to Penny.

So I've covered up the spots where the delicious-smelling muck is hidden.

I don't think Penny could get to this lot, under heavy pavers.


But I'm not so sure about this spot, where it's under a piece of timber. So I threw down a collection of sticks to make it harder for her.


Now, this one, under a flimsy piece of timber, looked a bit vulnerable…


so I added a couple of heavy pieces of brick and a big pot.


Here's hoping for the best. Luckily, we're off to Best Friend Retreat for a couple of days this week, so maybe the smell will have faded by the time we're back.

Mitch and Molly, and Lassie and Benji, I sure hope it rots down while Penny's away on her holiday.

How was your holiday? Good job with the bricks - you can never be too careful where delicious outdoor smells are involved!

Thanks, Curator. The holiday was great. And the nice smells seem to have disappeared from the garden while we were away.
