Well I Just piled up another pile of compost. If I keep this up. I'll be able to plant A new patch in Just Compost that'll be 8" thick. Theres already 2 p?u beds full of compost and I'll have 6 more before planting. Theres piles under the trees that are being cut out I Am finding (Pure leaf mold) Plus I'll be cleaning the poultry/rabbit area this weekend. I Am at A loss as to wheater or not till the ground as I'll have to hire that done! Any thoughts???

Be aware that compost is a much lighter soil in many instances and won't hold up wind blown plants well. I made the mistake of using too light of a material to fill planters--I used planter specified soil. Never again. I guess the company wasn't aware of the Kansas wind factor.
