A chance meeting last week resulting in me being told my neighbours were trying to get rid of a big load of horse muck as they were going round the world on a tandem bike!
Did I want any?
I'll have as much as you be got!
I'm the end he brought six loads, most is beautifully rotted, black crumbly goodness. Can't believe how good this stuff is.
Should go a long way to providing some of my soil fertility next year.
I also got round to clearing the sheep shed, a job I should have done a few months earlier really as I only borrow the shed.
I stacked it high and added a few sheep's fleeces for extra nitrogen and goodness (they're worth very little at the moment but I've heard they make good compost). I think I'll probably need to leave it for 12 months before use but it'll make some great compost.
I've another three bins full of this year's compost as well which should be ready for next year's growing season.
A few more loads of muck and I might have enough for next year! Bigger scale means more fertility needed!
Who here gets lots of muck in?
How do you provide fertility to your plot?
