All of this Shit
It attracts flies, it requires me to pick it up and contain or dispose of it, it’s a lot of work, if only manure would be worth something. These are the thoughts I had about manure prior to starting my garden. Now I look at it as gold. Right I know it’s not worth as much as gold, but it is worth a lot. It is one of the key ingredients to my garden beds. Yes, that is right, my food grows out of shit! It also grows out of decaying vegetation and bugs creeping and crawling around through dirt.
The breaking down of manure and decaying vegetation is a part of the cycle of life. The matter breaks down and is transformed into energy that grows into a plant that feeds and sustains another animal. Didn’t we all learn this in biology class? Hopefully we did.
