Manure: Cow, rabbit, chicken, and mushroom compost are commonly available in bags. If you get manure from a local farm, make sure that it has been sitting and aging for at least six months. Even then, spread it out, water, and allow it to break down even further. We only apply manures in the fall, allowing them to sit on top of the soil surface through the winter, then rototill in at spring planting time. Ammonia in fresh manure can burn your plants, so always “season” it before using. Never use cat or dog droppings in the garden.
