Mushroom Compost in a raised bed?
I am now moving into my second year of gardening. I first did a container garden that worked well, but was limited by how many containers I had. Then I did some row gardening and that turned out okay, but not great due to the poor soil here in Fl. So then, I am looking to do a square foot garden.
I have everything ready and I went and got 2 yards of compost from West Volusia Shed. It was rather stinky, and I could have sworn a bit of heat came off when I was shoveling it out of the truck. However, I have turned it twice now and it smells like pure clean soil.
My question comes to you all, Can I plant directly into this compost in a SFG?
I know it might continue to break down and lose volume, but that's an easy fix. And there is no more heat or bad smell coming from it right now. I just don't want to ruin my timing for my fall garden and kill all my seedlings that I have ready to plant.
Any help is greatly appreciated, especially those of you who have experience with this West Volusia Shed Compost in particular.
