Compost Delivery for 2014

I’m organizing compost delivery to the garden for $35 per cubic yard. If you’re interested in compost, email veronica@vtegen.com with the amount of compost you want by Monday, Jan 13, end of day. I’ll follow up with payment and delivery details.

REFERENCE POINTS:

  • The large garden plots that we have are 20’ x 5’9”. That 115 square feet.
  • Most of our plots have side boards that are 9-12 inches tall. A lot of plots appear to be 3-5 inches short of the top of the boards.
  • How many inches deep do you want compost?
    • 3 inches deep (recommended for most plots) = 1 cubic yard
    • 6 inches deep (good if your soil is very low) = 2 cubic yards
    • For reference, here is a soil amendment report I got from a soil test a few years back. There is a section where they recommended quite a bit of compost.

ABOUT THE COMPOST:

It’s made of horse and chicken manure with wood chips, leaves and a few other things mixed in. It’s from a farm in morgan hill.

    I’ll take one cubic yard for the 4H plot. Any idea on delivery date?

      The weekend of Jan 24-26. I’ll post the final date mid next week.

      Rusty, I changed delivery sources and it will be delivered tomorrow around 4pm. I was getting a bit paranoid about some of the vagueness from the previous source about the manure – if it came from animals that fed on pesticides. So I got a new source, direct from a 100% organic farm where the animals are never fed hormones and don’t graze on pesticide grains.
