Another issue we expect to run into some day relates to composting.  It is
not a permitted use anywhere.  However, in our ordinances, a prohibited
activity is "piling refuse."  Somebody could complain about composting as
piling refuse, and the zoning folks would be required to cite the
"offender."  Someday when we don't have anything else to do, we will have to
try to change that.

***Ok, I just couldn't resist.  If you use one of the barrel composters like
the twin Mantis type, then you would  be *rolling refuse*  rather than
piling it.

....running and ducking for cover..though you really wouldn't use your
compost-only-level tomatoes to express your opinion would you...Ow!
