Yes it will, but whenever I toss stuff into the compost pile, I throw leaves on top of it. That also helps cut down on the smell. When things decompose there is some odor. You want to keep any compost pile as far away from the house as possible.
I have skunks in my yard that do a lot of digging. They would do that even if I didn't have a compost pile.
When I was a child, my parents had three compost piles. Each area was only fenced in on three sides. They filled one area the first year, filled a second area the second year, and filled a third area the third year. That way, each pile was in a different state of decomposition. Then keep refilling the piles in the same order. After you use the first pile of compost, move on to the second one the next year, and the third the year after that. You get the idea. All of the compost will constantly be replenished.
I don't like the plastic compost bins, they don't hold enough.
Pine needles we use as mulch around blueberry bushes.
Some children need more attention than others. I am not looking for pity from anyone. When I was a child, I was a shy introvert with no self-esteem with a few fair-weather friends. Parents have an obligation to build up self-esteem in their kids. My parents didn't have that in their DNA.
Parents also have an obligation to monitor their kids to make sure that they are getting proper socialization. I am glad those grade school years (k-12) are over, never to be revisited.
I was able to find toilet paper at Target. Limiting the number of items that can be purchased has really helped.
So I guess there is a shortage on pet food. The media needs to stop beating that drum. That will just be another item for people to hoard.
I guess parents were wrong, back in the day whenever I coughed or sneezed, they would say "cover your mouth." That became habit forming and now we all have to break that habit.
