Compost Happens!

Alaskan garden writer, Marion Owen, shares her long list of items you can successfully compost. Now, I know you're thinking, "what does a gardener from Alaska know about gardening in Florida?" But compost is compost wherever you live. And her list of 163 items you can mix into your compost pile is stunning. The list seems endless and some of the items will be ones you never thought of. So, next time you think about throwing something in the trash can, stop and remember Marion's list and you will soon be turning your everyday trash into rich compost for your garden.
