My Epic Compost Score

Post  BillOcala on 2/21/2012, 8:57 pm

I just got permission to take anything I want from this enormous compost heap. It is the site where a retirement community takes all of its yard and landscape cuttings and materials.

This a massive pile of everything from finshed shreaded material and old mulch to freshly cut lawn clippings. There is even old straw. I am getting a load every day after work to bring home with me now Smile

I never cared about compost before and now I find this resource has been available to me for 6 years! Thanks to Mel, if I get nothing else out of SFG, I think I have bought my last bag of garden dirt!

Congrats! if I may offer a word of caution... It may be useful to ask the landscapers if they use broad leaf herbicides or anything else on the grounds that you may not want in your garden... Good luck! Very Happy

Great find on the compost!

Maybe we should post our gardens from a satilite. Mine is just a spot, cannot 'see' the veggies!

I am going out there everyday after work to get a load of something or another. The finished compost so far, but I think I might grab a bunch of grass and then some leaves and get a good pile of my own started with it.
