Need Gardening Advice
I have just ran into a scenario this week I have never ran into before in my years of gardening.
I always pull all my crops and cut them down and use them in my compost pile unless I run into a crop which did have some kind of disease. I do not want the disease to spread to my fresh compost.
But this year, one of my beds is being chewed up alive by bugs. The rest of the garden looks great. So it is time to thin out all these chewed up plants.
So where do I put them... burn pile or compost pile?
Now seriously, a compost pile is the process of decomp by bugs. But since these bugs are creating problems with my garden plants, do I want those in my compost pile? Are they going to be hanging around in there and spread to my other garden beds later in the compost?
What's your ideas?
