thanx... dato looked wrong, I'm not the cabinet maker here but remember my older brothers building some crude plywood furniture back in the 50s, using dado joints.
I used to have an open compost pile and just about everything I put out that was fresh would get eaten.
When I was a kid we had an open compost pile and our dog got sick one time, presumably from eating something rotten. IIRC my mother would throw all food scraps into it, while I follow the rules a little better, I only discard fruit and vegetable scraps.
Except Velvetta cheese. No animal will touch it.
not sure what velveeta is made from, but probably shouldn't be in there anyhow.
I don't eat Velvetta either but was conscripted to make a casserole with it and bought some.
Threw out the rest of the block and ended up having to throw it away after it set on the compost pile for weeks.
If an animal won't touch it we shouldn't either.
I'm pretty sure your new compost pile will have a stream of nocturnal visitors.
Racoons, possums and feral cats visit ours.
I already mentioned this to my neighbor who has at least a half dozen cats running loose and he wasn't concerned. The rotting fruit looks untouched since I dumped it out of the plastic bin a week ago or so. If the random animal gets sick and dies, they can't go back on the pile (no protein). Hopefully my squirrels will eat something bad for them.
