Great to have you.
HUM,,, soil and biology.
so composting questions should be directed to opabinia51....
fertilizer to meesh.
all I did today for my plants is buy them some bone meal. no time to put it on tonight. got a wedding to prepare for.
on the composting topic. I started a new hillside garden with sandy/loam, lots of sand though.
this is on a lake side home, lots of sun.
I've started a composting pile on the back property for future use on the hill but for now I'll need to buy compost to improve the soil.
how to get the compost 'cooking' as fast as possible?
also, my plant selections are for the most part easy to grow and fairly drought tolerant.
love a challenge!
not good on the feet though, horsing around on that hill.
