OPINION: Plant your fish carcasses for a healthy garden

WANT to know what to do with your fish carcasses?

Plant them!

That's the best thing you could possibly do.

Not only will you safely dispose of the carcasses, but you'll also provide some great nutrients for the garden.

Dig a trench in your garden and drop the carcasses in.

Make sure you cover them well to ensure no vermin can get at them.

And then just leave them be. For about six months or so.

When it comes to planting your next crop of veges, you'll find that they just grow like topsy.

It's best not to disturb the trench within that six months because you might find the smell's a bit ripe.
