Oh Poop!

Mule Poop

It takes a little planning and a few barnyard animals, but finding free fertilizer can be easy and cheap. A friend of mine who lives outside of town has mules ... and their byproducts. Mules are great animals, if you have the room for them, and they produce a considerable amount of fertilizer. Local stables can be a good source of livestock manure if you can haul it away and compost the stuff.

As our average last frost-free date is still months away I've added some 'green fertilizer' to the annual beds and the compost bin. That free fertilizer should be composted and ready to dig in to the beds by May.
