We have maggots!

This is Good News!

Unlike the mice and deer, the maggots were invited. And anticipated with hope and optimism.

What am we, crazy? Gross?

No, just a composting, gardening family. And let me tell you, that bin fills up quickly with a household of 6, and that stuff doesn't break down on its own. We've even had to take a few weeks off here and there, because there was no room in the bin. It was really hard shifting back to throwing food scraps into the *gasp!* garbage.

But now we have a bin full of happy little worms, feasting on melon rinds and coffee grounds. And all is right with the world.
