I got nothin'.

Really, I don't.

You can keep on reading but all I'm gonna do is prattle on about how I got nothin'.

Actually, I just contradicted myself. I cannot very well prattle on if I got nothin', can I? Well then, I will borrow someone else's material then.

If you are still reading, you deserve this (credit goes to the Montgomery County, MD Dept. of Environmental Protection):

Composting is a simple, natural, and nearly effortless method for “recycling” yard trimmings, such as leaves and grass, into a wonderful soil conditioner for lawns and gardens. It is also an excellent way to improve poor soils while protecting the environment from synthetic fertilizers and chemicals.

Composting Myths [pdf]It is a tribute to composting that humans have taken such a simple, natural process and elevated it through myth and misunderstanding into a form of new age alchemy. The spread of these myths has been facilitated by word of mouth, misguided publications from solid waste managers, and, worst of all, hardcore marketing. In order to keep composting simple and inexpensive,let's put to rest some of the more popular myths.

Getting Started: Composting Basics [pdf]Putting Your Soil to the Test [pdf] Healthy soil is the single most important ingredient for successful lawns, yards, and gardens. Unfortunately, it is the one element generally overlooked by homeowners as they head into their neighborhood garden center, hell-bent on beating some pest or jazzing up the green in their grass. The simple fact is that healthy soil produces healthy plants. Period. Anything done to improve the yard or garden which does not consider the needs of the soil is a waste of time — and potentially damaging both to the soil and to the community of plants it supports.
Worm Composting [pdf]In schools, offices, and homes around the country, people are learning to recycle food scraps like apple cores, banana peels, and coffee grounds into a valuable /garden fertilizer using worms.

A great presentation. Very open and enlightening.You have attractively presented your concept in this webpage blog post.Who wrote the sonnet of seaside romance? Guess Shakespeare would feel wordless at the sight of marine motif lace wedding dress. Amber’s beach simple wedding dresses unfold pictures of sea-inspired details like pearl beading, shelly appliqué and metallic embroidery. A profusion of drapes, bubbles, pleating and ruffling echoes to the very physique of the beach and the sea.
