"Saving bad compost". Bought some that's loaded with sand. Too heavy and grainy.
Sticks, dried grass, little to no manure, and and sand. It's pretty obvious. Needed a bunch as a mix in for my May mulch and my regular guy who does a peanut hull based thing that is lite, fluffy and works like a champ was out. And I used my concoctions earlier. But I throw nothing away. So Imma fix it, I think.

Broke it down to two big tubs and am adding 20 lb's of Black Velvet Mushroom compost (half a $4.39 bag) to each. A quarter of a sack of Jobe's Organic Tomato and vegetable fertilizer that was last year's and $3. bucks for 8 lb's from Walmart to each. Some fresh grass clippings and about 10 lb's of Scott's premium top soil (lots of sticks and organic material and cheap) to give it air and oxygen. Then I'm pouring a 5 gallon bucket of molasses water over each. Lots of drain holes and I'll keep it damp for a month.

As you can see I don't give up easy and throw very little away. Everything I'm using is cheap and the Scott's is leftover fill dirt. We'll see.

... but not cheap enough to make your own?

I applaud your effort but this seems like too much shite for a nickel

Make my own thank you. Doubled, no, tripled the size of my garden and got caught short. Thank you for your again for you concern. BTW, I have a sort of independent practical nature, whatever works and try not to get caught up in any sort of lockstep group thought. Adds a certain zest.

I bought something advertised as mulch one time that sounds like that, it was grainy composty dirt stuff, not what I call mulch. It was one of those one-day-only sales for like a dollar a bag at Lowes.

Do people interchangeably use the words mulch and compost in different parts of the country?
