How to Compost

There is no better ingredient than compost, for your gardens. You can till it into beds or use it as mulch. In the soil, compost adds natural fertilizer, microorganisms, helps prevent clumping of the soil.  The amount of composted material is 1/10th of what you put in,  but this is high grade super charged compost.

 

Compost nearly any plant material, including the following:

Leaves, grass, sawdust, wood chips and kitchen waste. The smaller the pieces the better, they will compost faster.  Layer all material including grass clippings and mulched leaves to about 2” thick and then one inch of soil or fully composted material. Do not put bones, meat scraps, and dairy products, plants with fungal diseases in your pile. Small branches should be put to the side as they take longer to break down
