Compost

It’s Fall.  Time to start a new compost pile.

I start one each Fall, then add to it until the following Fall.  The pile that I’ll now stop adding to, will continue to cook through the Fall and Winter, and in the late Winter/early Spring I’ll spread it on the gardens.

So the process of creating the fertilizer takes time.  It also takes work.  It would certainly be a lot easier just to buy a few bags of fertilizer at the feed store.  But the process of creating that fertilizer is unnatural and unsustainable.  It also doesn’t deliver the full range of nutrients that natural compost does.

So I’ll continue to do it this way as long as I’m able.  And hopefully one of the things Fall will continue to mean to me, is that it’s time to start a new compost pile.

Love  Wins
