Black gold!

Rich compost is black gold to us gardeners. I have my own pretty fabulous compost heap, filling it with every tiny kitchen scrap or morsel, plus all sorts of garden remnants throughout the year, but this stuff is special. It comes from our town, which has a serious weekly front door composting pick-up program. I filled these buckets with the rich soil then  spread the it around my garden. Composted soil is alive, and filled with astounding levels of macro and micronutrients that help nourish garden plants so they grow like mad. So get those hands dirty and make some compost for your garden!
