First year using my own compost - now I have monster plants

I guess I need to cut back on the amount of compost I use in my beds. All my plants are monsters and it's still early in the season.........

........I love my compost bins....never give me any trouble................ :D

My husband used some of our compost to back fill our retaining wall where the dirt had settled and now we have monster grass.. just in that spot. It grows so much faster than the rest of the lawn.

You'll be back filling that grass spot again. I had to myself. Compost doesn't work as fill.
