COMPOST CONTENTS... Each season, we have a professional composter on to talk about well-made compost because it's so essential to the market garden. Today, we have Zach Brooks of Arizona Worm Farm on to talk about his high-quality compost, vermicast, and veggie operation (among other things). The conversation ranges from the microbiology of healthy compost to the profitability of the many enterprises they have going on there. The AZ Worm Farm is so awesome we had to record the conversation twice. Warning, if you don't have worms already, you're going to want to get some after listening.
