Do you remember the delicious taste of a freshly picked, sun-ripened tomato?
One fond memory I have about my Dad is the look on his face when he took that first bite. He would go to his garden, pick the most perfect tomato he could find, wipe the dust off on his sleeve, and bite into the tomato. Pure joy would light up his face!
He didn't have to worry if the tomatoes, or other garden vegetables and fruits, were contaminated with chemical fertilizers and pesticides. He made his own compost and that's what he used.
In this booklet, you will learn the basics of composting, and several different methods you can use to handle your kitchen scraps, dog feces, and cat litter..
As you learn how to compost, you will save money on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and you will keep your garbage out of our over-flowing landfills. (Booklet: 10,800 words)

About the Author
I remember the first long story I ever wrote. I was in the third grade and my teacher, Miss Steere, asked us each to write a story about something in history. I chose to write about the Donner party and the tragedies that befell them as they tried to make it to the Wild West. I went on and on. I was having so much fun and making up stories about the people and conversations between them. It was like a game to me. It didn't occur to me that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I wasn't even old enough to understand what it meant to be grown up. Throughout school, whenever I had to write something, I always had a lot of fun with assignments. I remember writing about the Salem Witches when I was in high school and how exciting it was to make up "real" people who lived then and, unfortunately, also died. So what did I do when I was finally an adult? I worked as an accountant, secretary, draftsman of pre-fab metal buildings, I studied Criminal Justice and worked at the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department for a time. I ended up with a career as a paralegal. Well, that wasn't too bad. It encompassed a lot of research and writing and, in the meantime, I had actually written short stories, poetry, and two unpublished novels. I did have one non-fiction piece published in a magazine in the 80s. Yippee! When I lived in Hawaii, I even helped a famous Chef publish two cook books. Finally, I said "enough", quit everything, took early retirement, and moved to Morocco. Now, I am a writer. I love my life, and I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. I have a lot of fun with my characters and stories. To me, they are real people and my joy is sharing them with you and the rest of the world.
