The Cooper Review is the local paper for Delta County and they recently featured my Direct Composting article in their Gardener’s Corner. This column is a neat addition and it’s my hope the locals enjoyed the read.
This piece began by going down memory lane because as many of you know gardening began at Grandma’s house.
Direct composting is one of my favorite gardening tips grandma shared and if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that I reference it often.
I’ve been using it here at Quail Grove in new raised beds and I’ve already seen a huge difference in the soil. Every time I dig, I’m almost always greeted by worms. I LOVE that!
This article goes into detail about how Direct Composting works with little effort. It’s a matter of simplifying without sacrificing natural results; this is a neat way to keep your garden healthy.
For backyard gardens you can manage soil with less difficulty by implementing raised beds, mine are doing fantastic. I’ve gardened in clay soil before but not like the black clay we have here; I was a little intimidated at first and now I’m excited because between direct composting and natural elements they’re producing positive results….

If you didn’t get a chance to read this article then browse the blog, you’ll find lots of goodness or come and see me at the next Make & Take Workshop in Cooper – We’re having fun by doing more and sometimes we even chat about gardening. Workshop Sign Up is here.
A huge thank you to the Cooper Review for giving me the opportunity to share with their readers.
