Maggots in compost bin

Are you talking about a compost bin in a corner of your garden where vegetable waste, grass mowings and shredded paper etc is rotting down, or are you talking about the little bin you keep in or near your kitchen to put potato peelings, cabbage leaves and tea leaves in?

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Verdin ((hugs)) as others have said there are a lot of changes happening for your mother just now and as her ability to reason things out is waning it will be very confusing and frightening for her.

lily, hope your friend continues to improve, and also hope that Gran's worries turn out to be not too worrying, if you get mY meaning.
