  1. I top off my garden beds with mulched oak leaves, ground egg shells, a little horse poo, coffee grounds, and compost made from food scraps and leaves. Seems to keep happy worms and bacteria life in place, and minimal tilling disturbance helps keep my healthy mycelium around to assist with mineral uptake.

  2. I used the quail manure and pine shaving litter to mulch my strawberries, best berries ever. I did it fall before.

  3. If you have trays under your rabbits and you dump them at the first of the year on a planting area…..i actually burned up broccoli, cabbage and many other plants. The pepper sat there and simmered and the volunteer sauce tomatoes thrived. Lol. This year that spot grew well with similar crops. So rabbit manure with urine and low rain and snow fall after the first of the year throughout the growing season means burnt up plants.

  4. I was just saying rabbit poop when you said it. People think I’m crazy, but I have my rabbit pin inside my garden! In the winter I let them loose… They just run, play and poop everywhere! They love winter and so does my garden….. When it’s time to plant they go back in the pin, of course I can keep the poop from the pin too but letting them run in the garden all winter is easy!

  5. Thank you very much. David The Good has warned to be careful with hay (and I imagine similer crops) because sometimes it’s been sprayed with persistent herbacides (amino perilids?) that last for years – even after being digested by animals (so maneur also have to be careful with) and can kill your garden.

  6. I have used fish meal on my potatoes with great results blend with coffee grounds and egg shell powder and horse manure then cover with hay

  7. For those with dirt that is high calcium content like caliche, adding a vinegar can make that calcium bio available to your plants.

  8. Call your SMALL arbor/tree companies. Larger companies will charge you to dump chips. The small companies would rather dump to local farmers, gardens, and families than pay to dump a load of chips.

  9. QUESTION: AM I SUPPOSED TO BURY THE COFFEE GROUNDS AND CRUSHED UP EGG SHELLS IN THE GARDEN AND IF SO, HOW DEEP?? OR AM I JUST SUPPOSED TO SPRINKLE COFFEE GROUNDS AND CRUSHED EGG SHELLS ON TOP OF SOIL AFTER LEAVES, MULCH, SAWDUST, ASHES, ANIMAL POOP ETC?
