#106 Composting 101 and Beyond
Healthy plants start with healthy soil and the single best amendment you can add to any soil is compost.

This episode demonstrates to the viewer that it is neither difficult nor expensive to make compost in your own backyard. And root crops thrive in compost-rich soil so Chef Nathan creates a roast beet salad with sweet, caramelized walnuts.
