Sheep, donkey or rabbit manure???
Which would be the safest to use on a fresh bed?
I'm trying something different this year: straw bale gardening. I'm basically building a garden from straw bales, and making a bed inside the rectangle to grow tomatoes.
The tomato bed will be as follows (suggestions welcome)
Put down newspapers to smother grass, followed by thick layer of good leaf mold. Then I wanted to add a layer of manure (or should that go UNDER the leaf mold?).
I have access to rabbit manure, donkey manure, or sheep manure mixed with straw.
I don't want to burn my tomato seedlings. Which of these would be the best choice?
And then, I thought I'd probably add a layer of bags of soil/compost from Lowes. I don't have any finished compost right now, although I've got one batch cooking....it might be close to being ready when I plant.
