The Compost Blog

The Compost Blog page will always show you the latest additions and updates I made to the The Compost Gardener Web Site including:

  • New pages that are added to the website,
  • Any pages that have been substantially changed and updated with new information,
  • News gleaned from conversations, meetings, books, journals and other postings or news about Compost that I find around the Web,
  • Sometimes older pages that become important due to current events will be highlighted so you don't miss them.
You can also subscribe to my RSS feed. That means the information on this page will be delivered straight to your RSS reader. No need for you to come back here and check for it. Just right-click (control click for Mac users) on the orange RSS button on the left and then paste the URL into your RSS reader. Or click on the My Yahoo! button, My MSN or Add to Google button if you keep a personalized home page there.

If you're not sure what RSS is all about click on the "What's an RSS feed?" link under the orange button to find out more. Once you get started with it you will be amazed at what you can do...
