Using wine sediment as compost
Hello, I just recently made grape wine. I have a lot of sediment from it. I was once told that I could use that as compost. Meaning I would just be mixing it in the soil for next years garden. It does have an alcohol content to it. Would that hurt my soil or my garden for next year?

I would recommend fully composting this before adding it to the garden. There will be alcohol content, but not for long at all. It has a very fast evaporation time and will leave the mixture fairly quickly.
