The book is finally finished! I now know that I need to learn a whole lot more about composting and that I have a lot of options about how to go about it based upon how quickly I need composted soil. I've decided that my basement will contain a worm compost for the winter, but before that we will continue to use a giant pile in our backyard (which will compost very slowly).
Secrets to Great Soil was simple to read and understand and has made me realize where I need to focus more of my efforts to improve my garden without buying fertilizers. If you don't want to buy the book, take a trip to the library and borrow it. I truly believe that it can help any level gardener.
