After we got enough compost in there Little Sister watered the mix.
Later in the day I took Little Sister and Brother with me on a manure adventure. We had a conversation like this:
Me: "Who wants to go on a manure adventure??!!"
Obviously I have trained them well if they think picking up poop is fun. We headed off to get some horse manure from a woman who advertised in the Craigslist free section. What a great way to get rid of your manure! Better yet, most of the manure I got was already well-rotted so I'll be able to put it directly on the garden without risk of burning the plants. I got one plastic tote full of the fresher stuff and I threw that in my compost pile to help heat it up. Since I don't have a pickup truck I just took along a big plastic tote, three 5-gallon buckets, and some empty chicken feed bags. That worked out just great and I managed to not get the van full of manure.
