We all need food. If you have land
the cheapest and best way to get food is to
grow it yourself.
And maybe a good way to earn money is to grow food to sell.
We all need a variety of food - not just a single crop - because
variety gives us a better range of vitamins and nutrients.
Plants need food. Agriculture needs
a healthy soil - but most plants take goodness out of the soil.
One excellent free way to put goodness back is to make compost.
Compost is rotted waste organic matter, and can include kitchen
waste, animal manure, human waste (faeces and urine), waste
paper, plant remains, leaves, grass, etc. To rot well it
should be collected in a pile, kept moist, and have amounts of
soil added, and earth worms when possible. Dig the
pile over every few weeks to assist decomposition. Rotting
may take from 6 months to 1 year, and then the compost can be
returned to the soil: used as a mulch on the surface around
plants, or dug into the soil.
