Potential problems with animal manures

Haven’t felt like writing much lately, but this post, shared on Facebook, is worth sharing here.

A good reason to make your own compost—easy if you have chooks—or by stuffing weeds into a bin of water and using the liquid as compost tea.

    I use to regularly visit David the Good’s blog. I’m more inclined to watch him on Youtube now. He’s got some humorous videos, involving gardening. He was the person I first came across this potential for harm, from cow manure. I don’t know if we have the same herbicide, here in Australia. But it’s good to be cautious, all the same. 🙂

      Thanks Chris. I hadn’t come across him before. I’ll look up those videos and check through the rest of his blog.

        He’s a bit out there, as he sometimes like to sing in his videos (normally at the end) and do silly stuff in the garden. Which is quite unique, given most horticultural presenters are quite serious. But it’s fun too. He does have some great advice to share about composting literally everything. He’s known for the saying, “compost your enemies”. 😉
