Great pratical way to make compost

It's raining several times a week and my hairy vetch and crimson clover are growing well - it's been a mild winter so far. I weed out some Chickweed as I find it.

The garlic, shallots, remaining romaine, and Kohlrabi are growing well. I finally see cauliflower florets setting - pretty cool.

There's not much to do this time of year except weed when needed and continue to compost. Toward that end, here's a video that is a very practical look at how to make you own compost.

Grow your own food

Short and sweet - I grow my own food:
- So I don't have to pay the rapidly increasing supermarket prices
- To know what is it I am growing
- Because it's healthier
- It's not genetically modified (GMO)

Here's a short video explaining why this guy grows his own food. I buy seeds from this place as well.
