How I spent my weekend Pt. 1

March 17, 2013

This spring’s load of composted dairy cow manure, 35 or 40 wheelbarrows full. And yes, the tailpipe is almost dragging.


The picture was from around 10:00 Saturday morning; Sunday evening, still a little to go.

    Ok…here is my question….I live on the “brow” of Lookout Mountain. Sandy soil and doesn’t hold moisture very long. Nutrients are not strong. Bought stockyard manure to better the soil and will till in the soil. One month till planting. What can I expect from a vegetable crop?

    Composted manure is about as good a amendment as I have ever found. So assuming the manure you have is pretty well composted, you should do well. If is doesn’t stink like fresh manure you are likely there.
    Since Lookout Mtn is limestone, you might check PH of your soil too. It may not hurt to add a bale or three of peat moss to the mix when tilling in. Chattooga Farm&Garden in Trion has the bigger bales fyi
