After coming home from a trip to witness no less than 30 seagulls feasting on our out-of-control compost pile, some fist shaking ensued and then some head scratching. How could we compost the many and weekly 5 gallon buckets of vegetables scraps that come off the Riggin all summer long and have the compost meal du jour, enticing as it is, be less attractive or available to our critters? The result were these shipping pallets — free from the local dump. We started out nailing them together and then found that it was far easier to use polypropylene line to marry the unmatched ends together. They’ll be topped with a sheet of luan plywood and all of a sudden, the seagull restaurant is closed!
