1. Collect all of your compost food scraps, fruit peelings, coffee grounds, leaves, grass,etc. Get yourself a barrel & paint it black drill few drainage holes in it, which you will have sitting above your garden on a downhill slope. Everytime it rains or when you water it all the compost fertilizer will drain slowly down into your garden = a lot nicer fruits & crops!
