I know we had a compost discussion before, but I do not find it; so here is a new one, just came in this morning. It has the basic information, and for newcomers, there are some good ideas included.
"Adding compost to garden soil increases its water-holding capacity, invigorates the soil food web and provides a buffet of plant nutrients. Compost also contains substances that enhance plants’ ability to respond to challenges from insects and diseases."

Thanks I could use that!

Joan, thanks for posting.

Compost is central to my gardening.  I usually cold-compost.  Slower and messier, but not much work.  We have some compost tumblers that do a good job.  I always add earthworms to them too.

Setting up new garden beds, my compost wasn't enough.  I bought truckloads of compost to add to the soli in the raised beds.  Now that those are set up, I hope the home compost will suffice for refreshing them.
