Did you know one of the best times to feed your soil is in the fall? Yeppers! Think about it, for the most part plants are going to sleep, they don’t require a lot of nutrients this time of year. So consider giving your garden a good thick layer of compost to breakdown over the winter.
Don’t just put the compost on top of the soil. You will want to layout it out think and then turn it in to the soil. This will keep up good airflow over the winter and give the compost time to break down and feed the soil.
What you can put in your garden to compost over winter?
- Grass clippings
- Raw veggie scraps
- Coffee grounds
- Anything that is not toxic or does not contain fats and oils to attract critters.
