The fall has begun and leaves are falling fast everywhere at the moment. The making of compost from your garden is easier that you think and one of the best ways to practice recycling in your garden. Compost is the only way to improve the condition of existing garden soil. One can never over do compost it is the foundation of any garden and the more you add the better your garden will grow.
This is the year to do it! If you really can’t get the compost going don’t despair. Collect all the falling leaves and place it through your garden beds as a thick layer of mulch. It takes longer to break down into compost but in the meantime it keeps roots warm and helps to retain moisture through the winter.
