Well, here we are into the first days of Autumn…the days are getting shorter…yes, and the pots of annuals are mostly foliage and very little of that. smile. So, one of my favorite subjects is composting. One great benefit is that by composting yard waste like grass clippings, leaves and organic debris, is that it reduces the amount of material entering landfills. And composting SAVES MONEY! Interested yet? It reduces the need for store bought fertilizer. It is free. Adding compost to the soil means you don’t have to water as often, thus saving on the water bill…and on the earth’s water supply needs.

Bumper crops need good sunshine, water, nutrients and good soil. Take the time to prepare your garden soil for best results. Happy Gardening from Gentle Gardens
