Compost!

I’m determined to have a healthy, abundant garden this year, and due to my two beagles running around the yard, I want to leave chemicals out of the equation.  Trying to learn all the secrets of organic gardening at first seemed overwhelming to me, but I decided to start slowly and explore topics one at a time.  Composting was the first organic gardening topic on my list.  The aptly named Compost by Clare Foster is a simple beginner’s guide to understanding the compost pile.  The book gives a brief description of the science behind decomposition and then delves into all the materials suitable for the process.  Foster details various techniques for achieving the best, least-smelly compost pile possible, and does so in a clear, concise manner perfect for a beginner.  I’m confident my garden will benefit from this book, not to mention the fact that I look forward to making fewer trips to the garbage can!
