I have been gardening in one form or another for nearly twenty years. In those years, I haven’t always used compost, but during the ones that I did, I had a much more successful garden.
A freshly dug garden that doesn’t use compost might do well the first couple of years, but if you continue to not add nutrients to the soil you will see a sharp decline after the third year.
Your vegetables will be shorter, and they will die quicker than what they had in the past. This is because the nutrients in the soil have been used up, and the vegetables aren’t getting enough food to help them grow.
Adding compost to a garden will give your vegetables what they need to grow bigger and stronger.

Artificial fertilizer may help, but I have never liked it. As much as I wash my vegetables, I just can’t get the idea out of my head that when I eat the vegetables from my garden, I am eating the chemicals that were sprayed on them as well. It is unnatural, and if nature intended us to use artificial fertilizer in our gardens, we would have artificial fertilizer trees. Also, the byproducts from artificial fertilizer factories can’t be doing much to help our environment.
I have bought bags of compost from the store. They cost anywhere from $2.50 to $6.50 per forty pound bag. A good sized garden can take up to 30 bags easily. This might not seem like a lot, but in today’s economy I’m looking to save money wherever I can. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I increased my garden size, to save money on food.
When you make your own compost, you are learning and gardening the way our ancestors did. It is the way that nature intended us to fertilize our crops, and you will get bigger and better vegetables from your garden, I guarantee it.
I love gardening. When I till the earth, plant seeds, and water the plants I can see the fruits of my labors springing up from the Earth. When the vegetables are ready to be eaten, it’s with a sense of pride they are prepared. Making a compost pile and adding it to your garden is an important part of the process. If you are using artificial fertilizer you are adding to our pollution problem, and if you are just buying fertilizer you are wasting money. If you are using no fertilizer at all you are draining the nutrients from your soil. Making your own compost pile just makes good sense.Why Compost? I hope we’ve answered that for you!
