Personally, I'd be a little terrified of using compost. Does the soil have manure or urea in it?
I'm interested in hearing from The Soily Ones on this.
Edit: oh, another thing, too. I picked up a bag of sand at a local garden center. When I got home, I just wasn't comfortable. It looked OK, kind of a nice brown color. So I got a glass, put a little muriatic acid in, and a pinch or two of sand. Certain elements in the sand began to bubble.
-bzzzt! No good!
Better check that sand...
