That's a Lot of Horse Sh*%!

Quite literally. Really.  Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought even 5 years ago that I would willingly drive 20 miles to go get a free load of horse manure! But that's exactly what we did today so we can improve the soil quality in our raised vegetable beds.  With the ongoing drought in Texas, the manure was really dried out, and we are going to have to wet it down and mix it in with our compost pile before we can use it, but I know I can look forward to a bountiful harvest next year once all this crap, literally, is mixed into our dirt.  Tomorrow, we have to shovel it out of the truck bed. Oh joy. . .
