Okras and 'maters been gone for a week ! So hot this summer they were almost stewed on the vine !! whistle

not one bit jealous
of that 'mater-stewing heat this summer eek

smart move prepping the soil NOW for next Spring
Dry leaves, green clippings... horsey & chicken poo
are also a big plus. (watch WEEDS THOUGH!!!)
The beauty of A COMPOST HEAP is the internal temps
actually get high enough to cooks/kills weed seeds.

Then wet'er down & let it stew until next Spring.
