  • Because you're the only ones who will understand...

    I wish to share my deep joy at taking delivery of a fantastically huge trailer load of manure at the lottie this morning! Gorgeous stuff!

    I dunno, I've taken some sh*t off men in my time but I've never actually been pleased about it before!!!
    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Hey" he said "Grab your things
    I've come to take you home."

    Well done you. Wish i could get some. The only one i can get is the ones in bags in the garden centre. Theres no comparison to the real thing. It does'nt even smell the same.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

        Love it!

        Congrats on your delivery.

        I'm with you all the way. I was pleased as punch to have a trailer load of the stuff delivered shortly after Christmas, doubt you've ever seen a 32 year old so excited about a trailer of chit. I'm actually looking forward to getting down to the plot at the weekend to see how it's "doing".

        Is your well rotted stuff, or fresh like mine?

          Poo, don't you just love it! Well the horse variety, not so much the variety I have to deal with far too frequently at work!

            I used to get mine from a friend before she moved away and I would say "all this way to see you and all I get is a load of s**t".
            Fortunately I have found another free source,bagged and ready for me to take in exchange for feed bags.

                It's fairly fresh but with lots of lovely straw in it. As it's will be a topping for cardboard to try and get rid of the worst of the weeds, I'm going to use it as-is, unless anyone says otherwise???

                            Ask at the lottie site when you see other plotholders - there's bound to be an 'arrangement' somehow.

                              I can get loadsa the stuff. My very ex is a farmer and even tho he doesn't speak to me (long story) he still comes up trumps when needed. Trouble is it can't be delivered very close to the lottie and it would take me several days to shift it with a barrow. In the meantime I suspect quite a lot of it would go walkabout .

                              "It is neccessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live" (also Alexandre Dumas)
