  • Alt Right For Life

    Just wondering why people aren’t lining up for our toxic waste!

    We’ll have to spread it along roads now.

    Biosolids are toxic.

    • How do you what was composted?

    • Lost Croat Outburst

      How do you know that? People use compost all the time. Thoroughly treated sewage is fantastic. My Ohio hometown dumped the thoroughly treated sewage at the city dump. Everything grew like mad in it. Melons and tomatoes sprouted up all over and the ragweed was big and green. A mountain of it. Dad would bring home loads of it, screen it through 1/2 inch hardware cloth and grow the best, earliest tomatoes and vegies in the neighborhood. The compost Smelled sweet and rich. Spongy and absorbent. I still remember going out with a salt shaker and eating sun-warmed, wonderful tomatoes. Yummy!

      Judge for yourself, but this is probably a very good deal on outstanding free soil amendment and fertilizer.

  • Get there early for the selection! 🙂

  • Has it been tested for meth?

  • This is the best for growing psychedelic melons.

  • Just picked up a yard-and-a-half. Looks and smells like great stuff! It’s got a lot of forest product mixed in, too. Compost of this quality would have cost me between 80-120 dollars had I purchased it.
