We just bought 4 cubic yards of local compost otherwise known as “black gold” from our local producer and recycler Cayuga Compost. Isn’t it beautiful! I’ll be able to replenish my current flower beds and easily create a new one with little work as it will be a raised bed of mostly compost mixed with the original soil. What a difference nutrient rich soil will make. The flowers grow bigger, stronger and survive the onslaughts of winter better. The small bags they sell at the Big Boxes just won’t do the trick other than to fill a hole for a lot of money.
