    Default 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!!!

    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???
