but now something is getting into it & i don't know what to do (besides get another composter) which would be a waste of money. the sides of the composter pop out of place easily. i have hot-glued the sides together & the little doors on the bottom to keep whatever it is out (probably a raccoon or possum). whatever it is, it still tore open the side of the composter, ate what it wanted & made a mess of the yard. my composter is a GardenViews Super Composter. its not real sturdy, but i can't believe a little animal would be able to break into it after it was hot-glued. there is no bottom. it just sits on the ground. has anyone else used a composter like this one with success? i guess i could always try duct taping it together, lol. any suggestions would be appreciated.
