bone meal in compost
I bought a bag of organic bone meal (see picture) and sprinkled small amounts of it throughout my vegetable garden. I also have two miniature pinschers, and they went berserk. I have a green "plastic mesh" fence around my garden that has been successful to keep the dogs from eating my tomatoes... but this bone meal had them trying to climb the fence and dig under.
Twice I caught them in the garden eating dirt/bone meal and had to put landscape timbers along the bottom edge where they had found room to crawl under.
now that I think about it: dogs... bones.... bone meal. I see the attraction.
I don't want to use this stuff anymore, my question is, can I bury the bone meal in my compost pile without the dogs smelling it. My compost pile is about 4x4x4 and fairly new. My mix hasn't been "optimal" because it I don't get steam... It's mostly grass and oak leaves (lot's of oak leaves). The center of the compost is warm/hot, but it still breaks down given enough time.
