November 17, 2007 – Doesn’t Get More Old Fashioned Than This

After yesterday’s entry about sustainable enterprises and earning it – I can safely say that moving small amounts of manure from a barn to a garden are sustainable enterprises (however negligibly rewarding they may be).


It is strangely satisfying, though to move the fertilizer with only the labor of your own hands along with with a pitchfork and cart.


It’s a time of year we can directly put it on the garden now that the growing season is over.┬á This will be a tilled garden in the spring and although there is no financial reward, we will avoid having to purchase outside petroleum-based fertilizers, so I guess there is a reward of sorts.
