Mmmmmmmmmmm, smell the dirt. Have you ever just got a handful of the brown rich earth and smelled it? Nothing like it. Some feel a spiritual bond with the soil of gardens. The promised gardens of a new earth.

This material and a small effort will produce a 'batch' of rich compost in 18 days! Check out this Hot Compost link.
