LOADS of Manure

We had two dumptruck loads of horse manure delivered last week. Its somewhat mixed with bedding, and we will be spreading it over our fields, and using it our garden beds. All we had to pay was a bit of money for gas. Thats a heck of a lot better than the $ 8-10 per BAG you might pay at your garden center.

Our property has been neglected for YEARS. I dont know how many, but I would guess at least 10. I have now owned this home for 5.5, but have only lived in it for the last 2 years.

Its amazing what simply mowing regularly does to help pasture health, but no doubt a spreading of the manure will be greatly beneficial!
