Gardening Tip of the Day

  • After raking leaves, dump them into the compost pile and keep the pile moderately moist and turned every week. Add any lawn clippings you may have and vegetable trimmings and coffee grounds. Before the ground freezes, spread a 2- to 3-inch layer of the leaf humus and any other composted organic matter on vegetable and flowerbeds and work into the soil. The leaf humus and compost will further decompose over the winter making your soil richer, better drained, and renewed for spring planting.
