Okay, I need help.
I had vaguely noble ambitions to compost food waste, so maybe eight months ago I bought a huge rectangular plastic container with a lid--the sort that goes in a cupboard filled with children's toys. I started throwing food waste and chicken manure (fresh!) into it. We don't mow our own lawn or have any trees on the property, so I haven't been able to add grass clippings; apart from a few trimmings and things from my veggie garden, like rhubarb leaves, it's just been the kitchen waste and chicken manure. Unfortunately, I didn't realise that meat was a no-no; so there must be a fair few post-chicken-stock carcasses in there, as well as a small dead birdie my husband threw in (much to my horror).
As a result, not surprisingly, I have created a monster. The stuff STINKS, and not in a good wholesome earthy way. Every time I lift the lid to add more stuff I get enveloped by the stench and a cloud of small flying beasties. There's soggy, filthy water at the bottom--curious, because the lid always stays on, so I don't see how rain could get in. It has certainly decomposed, because otherwise it would have been full long ago--but there's nothing in that bin which can remotely be given the title of compost.
So... is there anything I can do? Can I fix it? And if not, how do I get rid of it??? I was planning, before this spring's planting, to dig a huge hole in my raised bed and tip the whole mess in, to do what it would. But when the time came I couldn't lift the thing alone, and before DH got around to helping or I bought a shovel I got bored, filled in the hole and planted my crop. So I don't have any spare space in which to dump the stuff. Help! For the record, we're on a rental property so our options are limited; I can't just build a vermiculture operation in a corner of the yard, or dig up half the lawn, or anything drastic like that.
