That Rodale book is a good one for people starting out...plenty to read. Barnes and Noble should have it in stock at your local store.

Dont worry about the triple posts...I do it all the time.

You'll have to watch your salinity levels. If enough cow poo is applied over time, it can reach phytotoxic levels.

Sometimes it IS about convenience. Manure is manure within certain parameters. As has been mentioned countless times here(just recently even ), some have slightly different content than others, but if the price is right for the person paying the bill, then the price is right. I stopped by a site Friday as a favor. Two spots browning out in the yard. Sprinkler system has been "tweaked" to the point that both spots get less water than the rest, but the soil is typical NM desert sand. Composted manure or compost was my recommendation with some seed t fill in the bad areas. We have a local source for some decent compost, but the first question was "what about the bagged stuff over at ******. I told him what ever worked best for him, but some good black organic material about 1/4" thick and rake some seed into it would do wonders. I also made some recommendations about UN "tweaking" said sprinkler system with a few new "tweaks" to help. Best part about being in the desert is that when you make suggestions to reduce water, people listen better than anywhere else I've ever been.
