    Do you know what really happens when things rot? Have other garden
    books confused you with vague meanings for words like "stabilized
    humus?" This book won't. Are you afraid that compost making is a
    nasty, unpleasant, or difficult process? It isn't.

    Compost making is a simple process. Done properly it becomes a
    natural part of your gardening or yard maintenance activities, as
    much so as mowing the lawn. And making compost does not have to take
    any more effort than bagging up yard waste.

    Precisely defined, composting means 'enhancing the consumption of
    crude organic matter by a complex ecology of biological
    decomposition organisms.' As raw organic materials are eaten and
    re-eaten by many, many tiny organisms from bacteria (the smallest)
    to earthworms (the largest), their components are gradually altered
    and recombined. Gardeners often use the terms organic matter,
    compost, and humus as interchangeable identities. But there are
    important differences in meaning that need to be explained.

    For thousands of years gardeners and farmers had few fertilizers
    other than animal manure and compost. These were always considered
    very valuable substances and a great deal of lore existed about using them. During the early part of this century, our focus changed
    to using chemicals; organic wastes were often considered nuisances
    with little value. These days we are rediscovering compost as an
    agent of soil improvement and also finding out that we must compost
    organic waste materials to recycle them in an ecologically sound
