Compost Gold!

COMPOST ... the GOLD of the Garden!

I was skeptical at first.  But I went ahead and tried it.  Yay!  When I first started I needed a way to use up the pulp from juicing.Perfect!  Layered it daily with pulp and brown leaves (of which I have an endless supply).Then I started adding coffee grounds, tea bags, egg shells, vegetable peels and scraps from the kitchen, and shredded newspaper (no colored print), layering with brown leaves and/or dried grass clippings.

No fancy or elaborate bins or unsightly piles.Nope!  I picked up two scratch and dent trash cans and began my layers.After the first one was topped off, I began the second.  Now, I have a full can for the spring season and by the time the fall season comes around, I have another can ready to top dress or work into the soil.  Spreading the love throughout the garden!  I'm no longer skeptical!  This stuff is amazing!
