I really want to start a compost pile! I have a great space in my backyard that I think would be perfect. The soil is very dry and rocky though, and I'm concerned that the soil won't provide the good bacteria and other nutrients required for this to work. I thought about using the soil from a bunch of the old potted plants that the previous owner had laying around. And then adding some earthworms (on top of some old plant matter laying around too from yard work I have been working on). Some thoughts would help :) Thank you!!
