- I grew a container garden last year from soil bought from Home Depot and from a local nursery. While they all claimed to be "organic", none of them just cut it. My plants never really looked healthy and the yield was mediocre, at best. Well, I'm shooting for stellar. If the results are not proportionate to the increase in my water bill, then clearly, it's not worth my time.
- Full Circle Compost is a local company and know our local growing conditions inside out. They know how to work with our local growing environment isntead of against it.
- And since they're local, they're very accessible. I spoke with Craig Witt, owner of Full Circle Compost and sh*tologist extraordinaire, on the phone and he nearly talked my ear off (it's a good thing, really!) about the perfect blends suitable for the area, testing done on their soil and plants grown in them, how to use their products, etc. He is a great resource not just for information about their products but for gardening in the Northern Nevada area in general. Would you have the same direct access to the corporate bigwigs that manufacture your "compost" sold at your big box store?
- Craig Witt is a farmer himself and if you have any doubts, check out http://www.fullcirclecompost.com/assets/Love_Apple/index.htm. He grew 100 lbs. of tomatoes in ONE plant. I want THAT!
Thank you for doing the dirty job, Full Circle Compost (so I don't have to)!
