The joy of compost

I know, I know, this is meant to be a serious business blog, but here at Red Potato we feel strongly about recycling and the wonders of compost.   Something to do with “as ye sow, so shall ye reap”.  

My King Edwards seem to thrive on a good dose of compost and well rotted manure.   I guess fellow gardeners will have harvested their crop by now, and be preparing the ground for next year.   It’s been an unseasonably warm autumn so far, which has meant we’ve had a glorious autumn show from the trees.   But now enough is enough; we need some cold, crisp frosts to kill off the slugs and other-wintering pests.
