Weeds and Manure




Category: Gardening | Posted: Fri Jul 18, 2014 7:28 pm

It's amazing how the weeds will start to move in so quickly. With all the unsufferable heat, the $1000.00 nosebleed and last weekend's bee adventure I've somewhat neglected the garden... and the weeds took notice. Since Wednesday I've been cleaning things up and it definitely looks better.

I'm still planning to have a late summer/early fall garden so there's a lot to do. I'd like to try something that I haven't done before with the soil. I've got access to plenty of cow manure. I'm going to dig out my rows and put a layer of dry manure, follow that with a layer of grass clippings, cover it all up with a thick layer of dirt and then let it sit undisturbed for a good month before planting.

I'm interested to see if that gives everything enough time to break down.
