Since Windows live spaces migrated to Wordpress I didn't feel the need for two blogs. Please update your bookmarks and continue to follow me. My blog is now more than just gardening and more active then before.
Here is my new link, hope to see you there!
It is still "Mystics Realm"

Well compost is the best thing for your garden and it comes from rotting food scraps and yard waste.
Why would you want to send your food scraps to a landfill when you can save money and use it right in your own back yard. To make compost you first need a composter to place your food scraps into. There are many different varieties out there to choose from and finding one that best suits you is something you need to experience for yourself. However I can recommend the types I am using myself as they break down the food scraps fast.
First of all I will start with my big open top wooden composter I use for my larger yard waste.

I was planning on putting a garden in this year I even emptied my composter into my three raised beds, but we go to the trailer every weekend and I didn't get my veggies planted in time.
To my amazement lots of tomatoes grew in all three beds. I didn't realise that tomatoe seeds could survive our frigid winters, but I guess they can. So now that summer has gone and we are now into autumn I can clean up my beds for another winters sleep. Hopefully I plant a garden next spring!

I still need to get more dirt but I have already mixed in
Everything seems to be doing good. My perennials all seem to be coming up nicely. Indoors I have many pepper and tomatoe plants, Basil, zinnia, sweet william and others growing. I can't wait to plant everything outside but I think I will wait a little bit longer because with this weather you never know when frost will hit again or how much.
Notice the rhubarb in the photo above. Pretty soon I will be making my rhubarb cake and maybe this year I will make rhubarb jam again. I will post the recipes for both when I do.
