I've been making compost for more than 30 years.  Use it, screened,
as a basic ingredient in the potting soil I make and use for
everything I grow - aroid and non-aroid.  Could not garden without
compost!  A compost pile is something, IMO, that every gardener who
has the space for one should maintain.
