Re: fixing up your soil

I first heard about pouring coke was 8 years ago from the gentleman at the
Purdue extension on helping your compost piles via natural methods.  6 years
of sitting with Dick on the county park board and I still hear him preach
using Coke in the mulch and compost piles.  Part of it had to do with the
sugars and helping break down everything.  I can't remember the other part.
Next Board I'll ask him and I send out why one wants Regular Coke not Pepsi
for the softdrink of compost...
