Free compost stuff

Post  Grandpop on 4/3/2012, 12:47 am

Since I retired, I'm always looking for free. I quickly found out that mixing the MM is not quite free. So I looked around and found a farmer who buys and sells cattle feed that he gets from a few area cotton gins. He puts the stuff in silage pits and after a while the pits have great compost. He also collects chicken manure and stores it on huge concrete slabs. Thankfully, he's a friend and said I could have all I wanted. My next trip was to our local golf course. They told me I could pick up as much grass clippings as I wanted from their greens, which are mowed two or three times each week. (Might be iffy there because the greens are sprayed with chemicals and I have to find out if the heat in a compost pit will render them inactive.) Then I found a number of people who told me I could have all the horse manure I needed that they have stacked up at their barns. Unfortunately, I can get all their cattle manure, too, but I have to go out in the pastures and pick up what I need. A little effort . . . but a money saver! Very Happy

Wouldn't shock me if some of those farmer folks also had other animals on the property (rabbits, goats, etc.).
