My teachers wouldn't answer questions whose answers were in the chapter I
was asked to read the night before. Some said "That was in last night's
reading," while others asked questions which made us think harder. Spoon
feeding people is like giving them a fish. Teaching them to do research is
like teaching them to fish.
Actually she's merely patronizing you... Gloria could have practiced
what she preached... but instead she used the opportunity to do what
she apparently does best: kissy ass. And you fall all over yourself
thanking and paying her homage. Oy
I am a slob gardener -- which means I do just enough to get the job done,
but I don't try to make work for myself. Years ago, I used to
do heap composting, and yes, it worked, and it worked nicely.
Now I mostly do trench composting -- dig a trench between a couple of
rows in the veggie garden, toss in materials to be rotted (disease free,
as this method doesn't produce hot enough temperatures to kill spores).
and cover with a little soil. When you run out of trench, dig another.
Let rot. Replant next year.

whys and wherefores and how to do it just rights. Suggested reading
Yard waste just gets mulched with the mower; branches get hauled out
into a little bit of woodland to rot on their own.
Tried it in vain. Composting would be great here, if it were allowed to
work as advertised. Ants are the problem. Any kitchen leftovers with
vegetable or animal protein is promptly attacked and drug off. Includes
immediate burial stuff. The ants won't go away, tried Amdro etc. They keep
coming back like Michael Myers. No, not building/buying an elevated compost
Profound is we're here due to a chance arrangement
