My compost pile appeared untouched this morning and, thankfully, there was zero odor. It was a very cool night last night, but still, I was kind of worried.

This morning I threw down the hammer at a few pieces of rebar, then wrapped some chicken wire through the rebar and around the pile. I was glad the “structure” wasn’t as flimsy as I initially thought it might be. If it becomes a problem, I can always wrap another layer of chicken wire around it all.

And now there are scraps of newspaper atop my pile. Apparently that’s compostable too!

Happy composting!
