Where to get manure to blend in with the garden
I frequently see manure being advertised on Craigs List. Typically it is free, sometimes they will offer to deliver for a small fee. I would recommend looking for “aged” manure. Don’t worry if it is mixed with shavings and straw, the more the merrier, it is all great for the garden. Regular or fresh manure is “hot” and could burn your plants.
Kendra had concerns with having time to start and maintain a vegetable garden
I would suggest starting small. Even a patio garden is better than no garden. If you don’t have time to prepare a garden maybe you could start this year with pots. I have a garden and I have mescalin mix in pots on the patio just for fun. Just make sure that they have enough space to grow properly. You wont be able to feed the family for the year, but trust me it’s enough to give you the bug to really want that garden for next year.
What do I have the worms for
I have worms in the worm bin for easy composting. Call me lazy, but it is pretty nice to open the garage door and the worm bin is right there. I have worms in the compost pile too. They were thrown out there when my worm bin failed last year. This is working out nicely because it is moving the pile along even faster than without them. So to answer the short version answer would be for quicker composting .
Thanks for the question, it makes me feel like someone is reading. LOL! Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!
