    John, I thought you would be making your own soil to top out your beds using worms to compost your kitchen and paper waste. After I initially filled up my patio containers? (about 200 gallons worth) with bags of compost, I make all my own compost and soil now to the point I have to give it away to friends and relatives. I have a 36 gallon Rubbermaid worm bin which fills up quickly with household waste.. Also daily, I pour 5-10 gal of water through it and collect it as diluted worm castings.

    @growingyourgreens I pay 9 dollars and 99 cents for a bag of compost.? if you bag your self what does it cost for the cheapest compost ??

  • Madhumangala Das 6 years ago

    Is it really 20 dollars a bag for any size bag? I have a 45 gallon trash bag I would use. I am thinking about going to get? some if its this cheap. Is that for all the composts there or just the biodynamic?

    Scoop the compost in with a hoe instead of you hands. It will be? easier on your back and faster.

    Do you know that Christianity? is correct? The world around us reveals that G-d DOES exist, and the historical evidence reveals that Jesus Christ really did come to this earth and? there is overwhelming evidence that Jesus Christ really did physically rise from? the dead. Jesus is coming again and the signs of the end times that were foretold in the Bible are coming to pass.

    Hey John! I am? a college student looking to start juicing and growing a garden. . . I am a complete noobie when it comes to these things. . . Do you plant your plants in pure compost with rock dust and worm castings? Or do you add the compost to potting soil? Thanks very much! Toby

  • cri8tor 6 years ago

    Thank you for this post. I’m going to see if Marin has a place to get high grade compost. If not, I guess? I’ll be headed up to Sonoma.

    so you have actually? illustrated what the plants take in…..right

    THIS VIDEO IS SUPER!! Having worked on a 750 acre farm I realize the value of replenishing the soil. We had livestock which helped, but composting wasn’t used. These concepts work fine on the small garden projects and they should help people? understand the problems the large farms face. Burying clay pots to irrigate plants in a 40 acres field is impossible. but small scale it is great.
