  • It’s hard to believe that as I’m typing this the weather is calling for frost the next few nights. Maybe I’m getting old, but it sure seems like time flies anymore. I can distinctly remember rolling my eyes as a child when older people would talk about time and how it seemed to fly by. Now, I’m one of those people. I guess life is funny like that. If I start reminiscing about walking to school with no shoes in three feet of snow I’ll know I’ve truly graduated. So, on to this month’s topic.

  • As the fall season progresses, leaves and other yard waste can pile up.  Composting is a practice that is beneficial to the environment and allows property owners to get rid of yard wastes in an effective manner.

    Fin-ished compost can be used for a variety of tasks:  improve soil structure in gardens and landscape beds, help soil hold nutrients, reduce erosion and water runoff, reduce weed problems as mulch, moderate soil temperatures, and conserve soil moisture.
