Recycling Day

Today I committed myselft to six loads of recycling. Actually it consisted of spreading six loads of compost out on the fields. A load is approximately 9 bushels since that is my manure spreaders capacity. It may weight as much as 1000 pounds. Horses generate a lot of manure and waste bedding. If you wait about six months before you spread it on the fields you can call it compost. It also becomes a lot more dense as the microbes do their job. Procrastination makes it sound so good! It was starting to get in the way so it was time to move it out. Any day that is not bitterly cold is probably a good day to spread compost. The big problem is to make sure you have good traction for the tractor. Cold is good unless you have ice. Warm is good as long as you don't get stuck in the mud.
