Got some tips from a couchsurfer that’s into urban agriculture, pretty much boiled down to “shit wants to break down.”
Ended up laying old drawer/cabinet thing that was by the side of our house on its back and dumping some week-old food I saved up there. Used some paper products and wood construction workers left in our backyard to hopefully block off and lessen the smell/animal attraction factor of our decomposing food.
We’ll see how this goes! I’ll mark this as complete when I get soil out of this! Even if it’s only a cup.
