On occasion, we will find a dead animal or (more frequently) a dead bird, which always leads to a discussion as to what should be done about it. I don’t want to put it on the compost, which is what Eve always suggests, because I don’t want to start attracting vermin. Equally, Eve is not happy about having some dead thing rotting away in the bin for up to two weeks.
Since disposing of the corpse is a task that always falls to me, it ends up in the bin.
Jennie Breeden, however, has found a much better compromise.
The only problem, of course, is that no-one ever steals from our porch.
