Prepare Your Garden Soil With Early Additions

Start preparing the soil by digging in leaves, coffee grounds, vegetable trimmings, leftover vegetables from dinner, hay or straw and anything else you would normally put in a compost bin. It will start decomposing and enrich the soil by planting time. This will also attract earthworms. If your kids have birds, rabbits or guinea pigs, you could add their droppings (herbivores only). Water in, and if you live in a dry area, cover with hay or straw to keep in moisture.

LOL unless you have a year old Boxer that will eat anything a human will. I always do this, but now that we have her I just don't know. She might leave the coffee grounds and veggies alone. Sadie is a corker but we love her. J.B.
