After taking Dr. Elaine Ingham's couse I have been able to take winter animal bedding that was producing ammonia and turn it into something wonderful that smells like the forest after a rain storm. A question for David Goodman, what is your favorite composting story? What did it smell like in the end? Do you use a microscope to confirm/analyze what you are seeing at the macro-level?

Hmm... a favorite composting story.

I have a lot of fun ones, but perhaps my favorite is the year I grew Hubbard squash and sunflowers on top of a pit filled with goat organs/bones.

It was amazing to me to realize that I grew those crops without fertilizing with anything else than what would normally have been discarded by the butcher. Magic.
