Irene Virag's Garden Party

I'm Irene Virag -- a writer, a gardener, a cancer survivor. I think ideas are like plants. They need nurturing to grow. And gardeners share both. So welcome to my blog. It’s all about what’s happening in my garden and beyond.

Earth Day

Celebrate Earth Day by going green in the garden.

Start with the soil. Start with compost. It really is the basis for any good garden.

It's nature's prescription for whatever ails your garden because the truth of the matter is simple: When your soil is healthy, your plants are healthy. So start composting today. It's easy. It's fun. It's cheap. It works. No synthetic fertilizer out there can match the magic of compost. You'll feel like Rumpelstiltsken -- turning raw vegetable scraps into brown gold.

And this planet we call Earth will thank you for it -- not just today but everyday.

my column about the joys of compost for advice and inspiration.
