Composting...it's a dirty job
OK, here's the dirt...(pun intended)...on composting.
I can't help it, I just gotta put a giggle in all this. Composting ain't one of the most sexy of topics...in fact it's literally worm dirt. But I gotta tell ya, if you want to grow a garden and your dirt is pretty poor...you're only gonna grow a bunch weeds without buying bags of topsoil...Costly......or composting a pile of the err...stuff.
Composting done right will turn your household kitchen & yard waste into nutrient-rich soil. Add a little moisture, a little air, some worms, and voila!...potting soil better n' store bought. Plus, you'll never run out of live bait (worms) for fishing.
Don't take my word for it...check out what the good folks at www.enviromom.com have to say on the subject.
And if that ain't enough dirt-digging, here's a great website that can really get you knee-deep in the pile.
