Black Gold


Natalie scored another Toyota pickup-load of manure for us from her cousin.  I picked it up this morning.  It’s horse, not quite cooked yet, but enough so that when it’s turned in, it will work its miracle.

It’s late February, and Winter and Spring are doing their dance, fighting over who will lead.  Today, Saturday, was cold enough that I could drive the truck over to the garden without too much damage to the lawn.

This was the second load, and we’ve now manured about 2/3 of the ground that’s broken so far.  Maybe today we’ll walk the neighborhood and see if we can find another load for the garden, and one for the compost and stockpile, from these little horse farms around here.

Update:  And today, Sunday morning, it is snowing.
