Hello from Captain Compost

captaincompostal(z7 AL Bham)August 20, 2003

I have just written several articles this year to Rodale's OG magazine, the Alabama Gardener, and the Birmingham News.

I'm planning to write an article to be published in the "Acres USA" magazine.

Does anyone know if they pay or hire someone to help you write a book through their company?

Here is my personal website, describing my latest ventures in selling hot processed compost commercially, and my OG garden lectures:

Happy Gardening everybody!

I start every class I teach on compost with IALBTC. So far no one recognizes it. I always want to know if anyone is visiting these forums.

I also saw your picture in OG. I am glad there are people out there extolling the virtues of compost. Do you know any university based research on compost tea? The one that I have read doesn't support the benefits I think are there. Part of the problem seems to come from the variability of the raw materials (the compost).

Just curious.

Thanks, Paul!

I'm not familiar with any university based research on compost tea as you mentioned. I only know of Dr. Elaine Ingham and her research team, and a few of her supporters from the composting department of Cornell University.
