Nurturing the health of your soil is equally, if not more important, than nurturing the health of your plants in the garden. Without good soil, and without rich organic matter, your plants will struggle to get the vital nutrients and minerals they need to grow strong, fight off pests and disease, and produce the bountiful harvests and flowers that we all seek.
Compost is a vital source of organic matter, and one that almost all gardeners use to feed their soil. But did you know that there are multiple different kinds and sources of compost? I didn’t either until I started gardening. In my quest to learn everything and anything about gardening, I stumbled upon the term “vermicomposting”. Upon further research, I learned that vermicomposting is composting with worms.
