Got Manure?



Every inch of the garden is planted with lots of veggies such as tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, all sorts of peppers, turnips, herbs, leeks, lettuce and cucumbers. We added topsoil, city compost and some mulch.  The garden looks great, but our veggies are not showing any signs of growth.  We did get a lot of rain and it’s been super hot lately.  Looks like we need to add some manure to the soil. We can’t use fresh manure, but we can use aged manure like cow, chicken or goat.
Back in January, Crystal a neighbor dropped off some goat manure that we put behind the shed to compost. It should be ready to be used now. This weekend we plan to spread that out in the beds and dilute some of it to water the veggies. If you want to help, drop us an email. If you have manure, drop it off in the back on the right side of the compost bin. 
The photo on the left is what our plants look like right now :( We need manure to make them look healthy like the photo on the right.
