Lise LeBlanc holds up a pair of underwear used to conduct a test in various organic materials, such as compost. The test shows soil health - if there is a healthy microbial community in the soil, which is what is wanted in this case, the more of the underwear will be eaten. LeBlanc says microbes need the carbon in the underwear and this pair was put in the compost pile six weeks earlier. Not much left indicates lots of good microbes in the compost, which is very healthy for the soil. Submitted photo
