We had a Compost Tumblr and a bear ripped it apart! The same bear (we think) got into the garage when the back door got left open. He opened the fridge and drank beer and pepsi. The Bear League had to come shoot him w/ a tranqulizer gun and haul him away. So composting here is difficult!
I would like to get some blueberry bushes. I saw some in Vermont and our climate here by Lake Tahoe is similar.
