Backing up

All of the horse manure we hauled in earlier in the year was gone by the beginning of May. And, unfortunately, the floodplain got wetter instead of drier during that time period.

Luckily, I've been hoarding goat-barn bedding in two big piles just outside the pastures. And Mark's careful driving made it easy to transport that incipient compost all the way across our core homestead to my garden. Looks like we'll hit our fertility goals until the end of the month. After that, the floodplain had better be passable again!
