road kill is good fertilizer if you have the stomach for picking it up and burying it. i don't actively seek it out here, but if it happens on the road near our property i do go out and pick it up and bury it in a garden as i don't want to smell it all summer (or until the crows and other scavengers get it taken care of).I thought that was what blenders were for? Well that and moss milkshakes of course.
I compost squirrels mainly. I bury them inside the dripline of trees. Amino acids from protein is a big deal. So too is E-coli and some other bio-bother. I do not chase my piles so hard that I am up on a temp and time schedule for sanitation although I should be. I mean I bought a compost temp gauge. It is still shiny and new.
If I'm lucky I turn mine once. It would compost faster and cook more of the grass and weed seeds if I turned it mire often, but it still becomes compost.
I just got out and turned mine today, even though it was crazy windy and cold. Felt good to get it done, I kept putting it off.If I'm lucky I turn mine once. It would compost faster and cook more of the grass and weed seeds if I turned it mire often, but it still becomes compost.
