Fall is a great time to clean up our gardens, and get everything put to bed for the winter. It is also a great time to start composting. We have endless supplies of leaves, garden plants that we have pulled, vegetables that didn’t quite ripen, and all sorts of great materials to build the perfect compost pile. You can also start your own leaf mold piles, sheet mulch your beds, start a lasagna garden, add high nitrogen amendments like manure to your compost piles or beds, add mulch to your existing garden and much, much more.
