I am a first time grower (thought technically second, as last week was
my first time and I managed to kill everything I planted in ONE DAY!!)
Amazing, huh? I planted all my tomatoes directly onto chicken manure.
I thought it was a good idea.
I will be re-doing my veggie patch this weekend. I have three raised
boxes and will grow tomatoes, perhaps some carrots and lettuce plants
I would like to re-use SOME of the chicken manure that I bought from
the store, but will be adding to it some potting mix and compost.. My
question is .. Should I mix the chicken manure with the potting mix
and compost, or should I leave a layer of manure on the bottom of the
boxes and add the potting and compost on top?
Hoping not to kill any more plants ..
