After the third year of composting we are working through the different ways to get take care of the bones. We used to just straight up compost them but they would take a long time to break down, they would be stinky and they would attract animals. As of now after we strain the stocks we put the bones on sheet trays and dry them out and then save them to burn. Ideally we would get a hammer mill and make blood and bone meal but for now we make ash and add it to the compost.

The actual act of burning the bones is a very good excuse for a good fire even in the winter. It feels really good and is a great way to reset and recharge.
