Well i hate to admit it but this years spring and fall gardens suck. So i picked up a load of horse manure and spread it over the garden. then i found a guy with loads of horse stall cleanings. i spread one load and piled 2 more loads. the are mosly wood chips, hay and some manure. I figure if we work the pile well and push it we should have good compost for late february early march plantings. Never done this before so input is appreciated. I guess to speed the process i can add some fertalizer to the pile and some worms or lime.
