    for 1000 sq feet of garden apply 40 lbs of gypsum. along with the organic material. Gypsum will break down the clay.

    Is it good to put worms in your composter? To help break it down to dirt?

  • chest002 says:

    I can answer that question. NO. While the compost is warm and being broken down into microbes, it is too hot for the worms. The worms go in after the compost has worked. The processed compost should go into a seperate bin or location to be stored for use. This is the time worms can be added. The processed compost is now broken down small enough for worms to eat. do not add colored paper, citrus peels, onions, or greasy garbage to compost.

    Great video. In fact, the best video on soil I’ve seen so far. I am a beginner gardner and I appreciate your knowledge. I like how you get right to the point.

  • TFSTrader says:

    double digging has been found to destroy the natural soil structure, necessary to a native ecosystem, and the bottom layer you are bringing up is devoid of the microorganisms that live in the top 4 inches of soil, better to leave the soil structure alone and add organic materials on top of the soil, allowing the native organisms in the soil to work it.

  • attilaclark says:

    A raised bed garden is some work up front but it pays you big time. Most people will quit gardening because they are sick of fighting off the weeds that will come in from the sides and all the rows have to be weeded. With a raised bed design you get rid of the weeding on the sides and eliminate the rows. Just add compost and plant it thick. 80% reduction in the amount of work you will do to maintain the garden.

    @emforty2 Its a crime what they are trying to do, but im new to gardening, only 22, and im wondering where is a good place to get non gmo seeds, or the privatized ones that monsanto is producing?

    I saw a website called “” Is it trustworthy?

    Thanks for any help guys.
