Compost Heap | Rajab/Spring 1438.
If you have ever sifted compost, the finished, fine material is delightful. It contains life-giving nutrients and microorganisms. It nourishes the garden soil, therefore, it nourishes the gardener.
Before sifting, compost is rough uneven material, often called a heap. It contains the past lives of kitchen scraps, fallen leaves, animal bedding, and less frequently, the carcass of a small animal. The heap heats, decomposition begins, and the microorganisms appear. Compost transforms death into life.
