JoAnne here.

It’s time to clean the goat barn. OH BOY!!

Ah, but what to do with all that good stuff?? Well, if one is into saving odd things — like the empty 50# grain sacks — one simply fills those empty bags with loverly odiferous goat poo to set aside for next years garden.

Luckily, I am into saving my empty feed sacks. 😉

The newly filled bags are coming with us to The Project, the stuff inside just as precious as anything else we’ll be moving. Why would anyone throw away such treasure?

There are thousands of web resources on ways to transform waste — goat or other — into usable garden soil. Here’s just one: http://journeytoforever.org/compost.html

Why pay big $$$ for bags of manure, that may or may not be infused with whatever is fed to today’s mass produced food animals? And if you do not have your own manure makers, there are hundreds of folks around here who have horses. If they have horses, I guarantee they have a manure pile somewhere. Which they will probably let you load up with and haul away, just for asking. Oh, you don’t have a garden of your own? Join a local neighborhood garden patch. Or start container gardens on your (or a friends) balcony or porch.

What are you waiting for?
