Recycle your garden waste.

Ever wondered what happens to the organic waste taken to the local authority waste collection points?

 Here in Spain after being turned into compost it is bagged and sold to the public, the cost of a 50 litre bag is €3.60; cheaper than the ordinary commercial stuff which is around €7 for a similar bag. It is very fiberous and  adds much needed bulk to the top layer of soil.

We hope to generate our own compost as we develop the garden though we have a long way to go yet before we will be self sufficient.

Fortunately for us many Mediterranean garden plants will thrive on poor soil given a little help in the early seasons.
