A little bit country...

And a LOT of manure!  Welcome to my weekend of fun!

I spent the first weekend of spring in Connecticut with my lovely family.  Saturday morning I did something I'm sure few of my big city pals have done - hauling manure!

My mom found a source on Craig's list that had plenty of it, from their horses, so we stopped by and picked some up for free! 

Dad let us use his car - heavily tarped - to bring it back home to my mom's garden to feed the soil.  It didn't smell - really.  (It had been sitting outside for a while - better for the soil this way, and for our noses.)

Lots of fun!  And, soon enough it will lead to lots of vegetables from the garden. 


  1. Way to go!

    Got to love nature... from waste to fresh vegetables in only a few months!

    Glad you didn't have to deal with the unpleasant smell though-- this cityboy has never hauled manure-- only seen it in Central Park :-p

  2. well done! I cant wait to get a house with a garden... im dying to start growing my own veg. Ive been growing chillis in my parents house but dont get to see them that often. I would love a full herb garden too!

  3. Well done. I would love to have a garden as well :)! Enjoy watching the vegetables growing. :)
