I am going to be so much more careful how much food I add in the future.
I think your Garburator/ garbage disposal may be like me and have a hard time digesting brussels sprouts. I can only imagine what your house is going to smell like in 6 weeks.

Lot of "how to" videos on You Tube.

There are items that never should be put down a disposal. I'm thinking brussel sprouts may be one of them. Thinking you got good advice from others here on what to do.

Less stuff in at one time should do the trick once you get it unclogged. I removed ours. Don't care for them at all. My personal choice!
If it's a four barrel, most likely it's a Hemi.

Corn husks are another thing that should never go down a garbage disposal.

I would not leave the food in the garbage disposal for 6 weeks, outside of the possible smell, you may attract a lot of bugs. Have your house sitter get a plumber (or better yet a handyman) and have it cleaned out and fixed.

That is a good point. I think I would just put the drain plug in and rotate the faucet to the other sink in case it leaks. Water in the drain trap is supposed to keep out bugs. That would be the frugal way to go.

Garbage disposal is fixed! Thanks to TOTV. I asked Gary Stambaugh 352 460-3173 (very reasonable) he went out immediately, Empty Nest had to let him in and they were on the ball right away too. I watched the whole thing from my security camera from over a thousand miles away. Are they the best, or are they the best?
