Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: organic matter

Organic matter in Garden with Insight is an amount of dead plant matter which has not yet decayed into the soil. Organic matter appears on the screen (in the garden window) as a small green blob-like icon. We call these icons organic matter blobs. You can drag organic matter blobs from one soil patch to another to create a compost pile by clicking on an organic matter blob and dragging it to another soil patch.

An organic matter blob

When the simulation is moved ahead, organic matter is incorporated into the soil patch it is over and is no longer available for dragging.
