Horse manure elasticity

using flat bungee cord to secure bonus buckets of manure being stacked upon other buckets

Our new helper Matt helped me figure out today that the new flat bungee strap is just the right size and elasticity to hold the 7 extra buckets of manure I've been stacking in the truck.

The ratchet strap tended to come loose after the short drive back and has a bit of a learning curve for new users like Matt.

I am very curious. It seems like you are always bringing in a load of manure. How often do you do this and does it go straight in the garden?

Kathleen --- We use a lot in the spring and early summer on the garden, but the manure Mark's getting now is going in the worm bins. My goal is generally to add a half an inch (or preferably an inch) of manure to each garden area before I plant something new.
