A smaller, better manure pile

Horse manure

We used to get our compost at this massive horse-manure mother load.

Yet the compost is located a short wheelbarrow journey away from our garden and I know exactly what went into every shovelful. In fact, manure day is the only time of the year when I wished I had twice as many goats.
