If you are retired or you just like to work hard at gardening, Eartheasy offers some good tips on how to make compost over the winter.
The tips tell you how to cope if you have really cold, snowy winters or really wet ones. And they cover location, additions and protection of your compost.
But if you are a lazy gardener, like me, one who thinks God handles composting pretty well, then you might want to read about my method of composting.
And if you want to know why composting is so important, check out why the magic of gardening truly is, “…in the dirt.”
BONUS: two of my very favorite books on dirt are included in the Magic of Gardening. Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth by William Bryant Logan and Holy Shit: Managing Manure To Save Mankind by Greg Logsdson.
If you’re looking for a gift for your organic gardener, you can’t dig up any better than these two tomes. Perfect for reading on the coming winter days!
Thanks for the links! I gathered a lot of leaves for the winter. The compost will be great for the next year!
