“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

As you all probably know by now I am an avid composter. I have several sources that bring their "waste" to my farm so that I can compost on a larger scale than I would otherwise be able. Well, I just read an article in Mother Earth News that every gardener needs to know. Basically some of the herbicides that are on the market are surviving through the composting process and then killing the gardens that the compost is used on. It is a good article and a definite need to know for those of us trying to raise our food (or even pretty flower gardens for that matter). Happy Composting!
