This past Wednesday, I headed up to Kinney Compost to look at their products. I met Wes Kinney, the owner, and we chatted while he gave me a tour of his place. Wes certainly has a love for compost and his products show it.

Sadly, I wasn’t able to make my own compost last year, I should say, I wasn’t able to pack it up and bring it with me to Maine. Thank goodness for people like Wes. Now I can have good quality compost for my garden even though I wasn’t able to make it myself.

I’m already setting up my compost pile for next year, so this should be the only time I need to purchase it. That’s a good thing, because good quality compost isn’t cheap!

Do you make your own compost?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
