Re: Mulch sales?
Bow Buster.... I've probably bought 25 ton of mushroom compost in the last 5 years. It's great for loosing up clay soils. I started a big garden at camp, all yellow clay . Tilled in 5 pick up loads of compost, now have good dirt. I also use it straight in raised beds. I've built a dozen raised beds, 6x10 feet, and have filled them full of mushroom compost. I grew really nice carrots, onions,beets and sweet potatoes in them. I put in a couple of raised beds for my son, he grew strawberries, peppers, potatoes, cauliflower, and tomatoes in 100% compost. The nicest garden I've ever seen. If you google growing gardens in mushroom compost, it'll tell you that the compost has no value as far as growing a garden. I can tell you the master garden folks got that all wrong. Just make sure the compost has time to cool and hit it with 10-10-10.
