Building Better Soil



Landon is spending this unseasonable fall day spreading fresh mushroom compost onto our now-empty vegetable beds.  This is a new practice for us, one that was facilitated by last year’s purchase of a tractor with a bucket (see photo).  The mushroom compost is a byproduct of Pennsylvania’s robust mushroom industry and an affordable source of organic matter and macronutrients.  Assuming next year’s crops respond well to the compost addition, we’re excited to add it to our soil-building toolkit.
