compost

Compost is a key ingredient in farming. The process of composting simply requires
making a heap of Damp organic matter (leaves, egg shells, and other food waste)
and waiting for the materials to break down into dirt after a period of weeks
or months. It has to be a closely monitored process with measured inputs of
water, air and rich materials. Worms help to further break up the material.
Compost can be rich in nutrients. It is used in gardens, landscaping,
horticulture, and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in
many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer, addition of vital
humus,and as a natural pesticide for soil. We use our compost in our garden.
You have to wait a long time before you get a good compost pile going. We
started ours a long time ago! And yet it still needs more time before it’s just
right.

You can speed up the process by shredding the plant matter, adding water and ensuring proper aeration by regularly turning the mixture.
