Salt it now

Salt it now.....leaving it out won't hurt it. I'd try to leave it someplace cool, but don't wait until your supplies arrive. Get it salted! If it has been salted for two days, I'd shake that salt out of it, salt it again with clean salt and then leave it until your supplies arrive. It is important to get the salt on it as soon as possible.

I agree with jhart, salt it as soon as you can. I would however not leave it on your work table as it is probably a flat suface and the leetched fluids will have nowhere to drain. Try hanging it over a bucket to catch the fluid or lay it on a slanted surface. Milk crates work well for this also. Happy Holidays! Marc
