Yes, that is a shit load of crap. Cow crap to be specific. So, we won't be crapping out or out of crap for some time. Not unless the shit hits the fan anyway and then we are probably going to be in deep shit or up shit creek, however you want to look at it. Actually, I prefer not to look at it or smell it either but it is good for the garden. Anyway, Jack finally got his shit together today and went over to the cow neighbor, who said they didn't give a shit if we got it, and loaded poor ol' Blue down (twice) with well, cow shit, for the garden. Jack is usually full of shit but today the truck was too. Afterward, he was really pooped.
Hehehee, okay, have ya'll had enough?
I'm pretty good at spreading shit, so I got this honor. As soon as the rain stops we are going to till this in and it will sit and compost some more for about 4 to 6 weeks. By planting time the shit should be straightened out. Hopefully, I will be able to grow a shit load of veggies now.
Chigger says, 'I'm staying out here; I'm not getting involved in that shit!' Actually, Chigger the Dog (as Jack says is her full title) knows that the garden is off limits to her. Her mole chasing habits would destroy my plantings.
I also spread this kelp meal over the garden to be tilled in with the other crap. I have used this stuff before and it really helps to add many nutrients to the soil. It is supposed to be sustainably harvested from areas of the sea that do not suffer from contamination. I try to use only natural fertilizers and make my own compost etc. but this soil here is very lean and I'm just trying to get it up to the point it will grow stuff halfway decently. After testing the soil last year I was actually not so surprised to see it was basically dirty colored sand.
I finally have my handy-dandy, homemade composter working and I will be showing that to you soon and hopefully, adding much needed 'black gold' of my own making.
Well, rain is coming in tonight and looks to be here for a couple of days, so my projects have moved inside. I hope to get the pantry floor installed this weekend and will be showing that to you soon also. I'll be very excited to be finished with that; thrilled shitless I guess you'd say.
