Like a pile of gold!

Manure delivery

Really can’t think what delivery of basic farm supplies could make me happier than today’s six truckloads of well-aged cow manure. Since we don’t have an on-farm source, getting this from a farm less than a mile (1.6km) down the road, loaded to order and delivered by the farmer himself, is a pretty good Plan B. This has been stacked for average around a year, so the composting action is well underway. I’ll be rearranging it into large windrows with the compact Kubota, for further breakdown till spring, and spreading some now. Heart-warming! :)

  2. Oooh, I have compost envy! I’d love to be able to get my hands (or at least shovel) on that much manure!

  3. I’m happy for you acquiring such a valuable resource for growing. Last year I experimented, growing half of my potatoes with manure and half without to see the results. Well, I had substantially greater yields from the manure planted spuds by far – it really is amazing stuff!
    Good luck with it all.

  4. Now if they could do this for city gardeners and all the urban community gardens, that would be fantastic!
