Garden Gold

There's an old shed on our farm that we store a hay wagon under.  The goats like to hang out there sometimes.  And where there are goat there is goat manure.  I have never cleaned out the shed so I thought this would be easy to get to and put on the garden.
 I had 3 big tubs filled in no time.
 Next came spreading in in rows in the garden.
 Look how fast it worked.  Just kidding, that's some volunteer lettuce that I had to work around.
 We've planted broccoli, lettuce, spinach, onions and cabbage so far.  I am not looking forward to all of the weeding to come.
And I'm finally getting enough asparagus to make a good helping.

Our asparagus has been stingy so far this year.

Definitly a gold mine to a gardener.

That asparagus leaves my mouth watering! I've been putting "chicken gold" on my garden this winter/spring...hope it likes it! :)

We love to use "Goat Gold" in our garden as well! Unfortunately, we live at 7500ft and it will be at least 3 more weeks before I can plant the majority of my garden. Now you've given me gardener's envy. HaHa!
