How Far Will I Go for Compost?

Do you know anyone else that schleps around buckets of manure?? Honestly! I put this in my car, (we traded in the pick up), and my car is kinda nice!
I have no other way to get poop to the Impervious Pile of Grass!
My girlfriend brings horse/cattle/chicken poop, depending on who is getting cleaned out that day. I put it in the back of my crossover, (no trunk!), and take it home.
I don't mind the smell, so much, but the flies are awful!

Truly, I think this certifies me as over the edge in trying to get rid of the Impervious Pile of Grass!


  1. Ah, the markings of a true composter!
    I knew my hubby truly loved me when he used his new little pickup to haul load after load of donkey "doo". But, I don't know if he'd haul buckets full IN a vehicle. Love has it's limits!!

  2. LOL, Sissy. I have to admit I have never toted manure in my car! I think you win the going-too-far-for-manure award! :)

  3. Make sure you come over to my blog today to enter my birthday giveaway and to see your princess costume! hehe I will be back later to catch up on your posts. xoxo

  4. LOL! In Santa Fe, there is municipal transfer station and you can pick up free mulch there. Some of it has horse apples. I load up bags of it and put in the back of my station wagon. The seats fold down and are backed with plastic instead of upholstery.

  5. No, this certifies you as a true gardener:) I don't have a truck either--though there many times I wish I did--and I've hauled a lot of strange things in my crossover, including compost, but never "raw" manure:)

  6. Actually I've done the same thing. One time I bought bags of steer manure and put them in the back of the van. Ew! But my plants loved them so it was a sacrifice worth the effort.

  7. Want some chicken poop mixed with straw?? LOL I had a friend who bought a calf as a gift and stuffed it into her Cadillac with white interior. By the time she made it to Michigan there was crap everywhere.

    Your garden will thank you though!

  8. I think it certifies you as a dedicated, devoted gardener. I know your plants are thanking you.


I would love to hear from you and if you can leave a comment, I will visit your blog, too!
