Goat Poop for Goat Fodder


So we don’t have our goat, but I did go out and get a hoe and a sack of goat shit a few days ago. We staked a plot in our backyard. Here’s the before shot.

It took quite a bit of work to hack through the hard ground. We removed the top layer of grass and a lot of rocks and roots, digging and sifting almost a foot down. Then mixed in the manure. Happiness is a plot of tilled soil:

Yesterday we planted the seeds: carrots, onions, bell peppers, jalapenos, arugula, chives, swiss chard, squash, eggplant, etc. Just in time for the beginning of rainy season. Got our first big rain last night that soaked it nice and good. Stay tuned.
