Sunshine, I wish I could take the credit for the Craig's Listing lead, but, I'm afraid it will have to go to the correct person.

If you had followed the advice of the guy at Armstrong's, you wouldn't be able to share the amazing photo. You should take the photo to the guy.

[quote="grownsunshine"]

A little over a month ago I got really excellent compost form someone who made it at their farm (llama manure, chicken manure, horse manure and wood chips). They aged it for 3 years. The owner said big time steam was coming out of the top. They were down to their last few tractor scoops, so I got what the wife didn't use...prime stuff. Sanderson or someone sent me the Craigslisting for it. THANK YOU!!!!!!

Was it me who recommended the craigslist?? I admit, I'm a craigslistaholic!! So many good deals there! wow. Your garden looks great, so glad you decided to go ahead and plant!! wahoooooo!!

Southern Gardener - Super duper thank you from me and my family of plants!!! As a newbie, I learned so much from the experience of having quality compost vs store bought. We always post about it, but experiencing it solidifies the significance and motivates me to keep my out for sources.

Today I'm supposed to pick up some free horse manure (found on Craigslist, lesson I learned from you). I have access to free cow manure. The gardener left some grass clippings in my back yard....all green. Brown is easy for me to get...saw dust, shredded news paper, dead leaves, etc. I have a compost pile going, but I'm excited to add new ingredients to boost the quality. Will keep my eye out for rabbit, chicken and other free sources. Wahooo!!!

I haven't been here on the forum for while. I always have goat manure available if anyone is interested. Mostly it is only mixed with a small amount of waste alfalfa hay.
