It would be an exaggeration to say that my morning has been blighted by what I saw when I opened the dining room windows this morning. I wasn’t chuffed, though.
It seems the rats don’t like pickled chillis, bay leaves and onion skins, so thankfully some of the bokashi solids will still be available for fertilising the soil. On the other hand, I wonder if the rats have been eating marigolds and dandelion leaves or in the compost heap perhaps these have been pulled down to adorn their nest.
Anyway, they’ve also found the bokashi under the flagstone, so no doubt they’ll have had a feast last night. On the other hand, I have just seen a blackbird pecking round the strawberries, so I need to be careful with any remedial action taken.
