10 Yards of Compost!

Leave a comment

This weekend we got a delivery of 10 yards of screened leaf humus. On a recommendation from another urban farmer, we got it from Three-Z-Inc. in Valley View. Cost with delivery $287.70 (that’s $22/yard). Our plan is to add this to the soil (about 3 inches to each bed) for organic material. The ultimate goal is to be able to make our own on-farm compost, but we’ll likely have to purchase more in the interim. In fact, we just found some aged horse manure on Craigslist and got about a yard+ of that the other day to further augment our soil.

Hot and steamy compost!
