This Week in the Veg Patch

Learn to make your own "brown gold" for your health, and the health of the planet...

Of all the skills that I have learned as a GIYer, being able to make my own compost has been the most useful.  The compost corner at the end of the garden, is not a pretty or quaint place, but it is pivotal when it comes to the food producing that occurs in my garden, and without it, very little food would grow at all.  Over the years I have learned to see these two parts of my garden (the veg patch and the compost corner) as intrinsically linked and part of a natural cycle of growth, decay and regrowth that is essential to growing. Catch up on GIY  Founder, Michael Kelly's growing week here
