Compost is Black Gold!

If there was only one piece of advice I could give to improve your soil, it would be to compost. This dark, crumbly, “black gold”, is made up of decomposing organic matter. It improves your soil and keeps kitchen scraps and yard debris out of landfills. That’s 30% of household waste! So many items are compostable – more than you would probably consider.

    I didn't test my soil for years, and the first time I did, the report said that I didn't need to add anything. All I had ever added up to that point was compost!
