|After removing the last of the compost from the location in the |
foreground of this photo, I added a 6" layer of leaves and pine needles,
and then addedthe old lime basil twigs and sugar snap pea vines.
Spring compost!It was time to clear out the last of the compost from last year's pile. I needed to use it to refresh some of the rows where I'd harvested the crops and it was time to nourish the soil around various shrubs.
When I get to it, I'll turn the old compost pile onto the freshly prepared space. Then the cycle will start all over again.
Isn't it amazing how one spring garden chore leads to several others?
