alder leaves and produce greens compost
I seem to be getting contradictory information in regard to whether a 50/50 mix of brown alder leaves (fallen and collected off the ground) and grocery produce trimmings/waste would create a good nutrient-rich compost. Numerous articles/info I've seen on the web seem to indicate it would be good, however the plant/horticulture expert at the local extension service says "Probably not much nutrient content in that compost. It would not be like plant tofu but it would be a drop in the plant nutrient bucket." Any comments appreciated.
