My wonderful friend Shelly has a gorgeous mare named Izzy, short for Giselle. Shelly invited me out to the barn where she boards Izzy to pick up some manure compost for my garden. I jumped at the chance! Yesterday morning, I went out there and hauled back three big contractor bags full of this stuff.
It's been sitting in the hot sun for about six months and it is completely composted and the perfect mulch for my garden. Yesterday afternoon I spread it on three of my beds and watered it thoroughly. My beds look beautiful!
Maybe it will help my struggling peppers :/
And this stuff is full of good nutrients for my soil and is better than anything I can buy in a bag. And the good thing is there is plenty more where this came from!
And here is the beautiful Izzy who helped contribute to this pile of organic love for my garden :)
