Compost

Compost is decomposed organic matter

Composting is a natural process of recycling organic material such as leaves and vegetable scraps into a rich soil amendment. Compost is decomposed organic matter; adding compost to the soil each planting season promotes soil microbes that aid plant growth. Research shows that compost enhances the ability of tomatoes and other vegetables to stand up to common diseases and improve their flavor and nutrition. Compost also helps the soil retain moisture. Through composting you enhance your garden’s ability to grow healthy plants while reducing your volume of trash.
