We need some form of national manure network. Have you both looked at a freecycle scheme in your areas?

We've got loads of manure and so have all our neighbours, its a shame it's not easier to transport.

Talking about easy gardening, we've been enlarging our garden with our new toy. Note the lovely earth - with no digging whatsoever, just chickens on it all winter. Once the plants are planted and have grown up a bit, we mulch and that's it!

Now theres a good topic, gardening with chickens. Ours do hoover up the bugs and if we had more they could easily dig over the soil, ideal rotovators.

It's true, that Treacle nearly had my hand off tonight because I wasn't quite nimble enough with the mixed corn
