I hit the jackpot this weekend, unlimited black gold. I have a friend at work who lives in the country and has several cows and horses. She told me that I was free to come and pick up a load of manure in my truck.
So me and the family drive out there and check out her property. My daughter had a really good time seeing the cows and the catfish in their pond. And the best part.....I didn't even have to shovel a single ounce of it. They had a front end loader and just loaded my truck right up. They also said I was free to come back anytime. How awesome is that! Now this is a gardeners dream, unlimited organic fertilizer.
I have already started putting it to use. I added some layers to my compost bin. I also mixed in some in my raised bed that I just harvested carrots from. I am just living the gardeners dream.
I planted some eggplant in this bed after mixing this manure in.
