I told my children i wanted some cow manure for my birthday and got
it; loads of the dried material from the floor of ancient but still
usable barn. This material never got wet through the years and I am
wondering if it might be quite strong with uric acid???? wondering if
it needs to be put through a composting time or whether it is, being
quite aged, aleady suficiently "composted." (I had expected fresher
stuff<G> but thought this would be fine...)
I used some of it to make compost tea with an air pump to aeriate it
and i think it may have burned a couple of plants but then let it
keep 'working'and tried it out, diluted, on a little Tradescantia
fluminensis mouse ear that wasn't doing as well as i thought it
should, and it livened up tremendously!
do i need to compost it or is it already considered to be ok to use
as a top dressing on the garden????
thanks in advance.. leo/lee
