There was this one back road where the beavers built a dam about 50 feet downstream of the road and flooded it. The army kept blowing up the dam and the beavers kept rebuilding, each time a little more upstream. Eventually the army blew their way though the road (no kidding) and the beaver dam had a big "U" in it facing upstream.

The last time I drove that road was in a friends old 68' Ford Bronco, and we had to drive through flooded road, up and over the dam and down the backside.......where naturally we got stucker than pigs in a poke. We had to get back up over the dam on the other side and onto the flooded road on the other side, but before we could do that we had to tear the dam apart by hand and drain the pond. It took a few hours and a few beers and a whole lot of cussing.

Default post hole diggers

I have to admit the post hole diggers are very efficient. They are the perfect size and they slide right down. Need to get them down about three feet. Other coons will dig them up and have their way with them.

So I finished the coon composter (still needs a lid), and the Mrs. says she doesn't want stinky rotting coons in her worm bed.

Maybe I'll make another one, or maybe I'll just leave her surprises.

Fire it is!

So I started smelling the rot way too much, and have now got 3 coons cooking off in the burn barrel: HUGE improvement.

The Indians used to put a fish under every hill of corn as fertilizer. I put a couple of coons and a possum under a 3 plant hill of Rhubarb last year. The plants were poor looking and of questionable survival. Made great fertilizer. Meat is full of N, bones are Ca and P. I am sure there is some K in there too. Plants did great. You got to get it deep enough and covered enough to keep the neighbor dogs from unearthing it and getting you back to square one. It could be the ultimate fruit tree slow release fertilizer. Good hunting. "D"
