Cow Manure - first time gardner post
I'm building a fairly sizable vegetable garden for my mother as a surprise. The raised beds have been built and are put in place. I'm having 16 cubic yards of screened topsoil delivered tomorrow. But that leaves roughly 4 cubic yards unaccounted for. I have a local farmer who sells cow manure. If its fresh can I incorporate it in with the topsoil. So essentiallly 3/4ths top soil 1/4 semi fresh cow manure? I plan on putting my crops in in about 15 days. Am i crazy to do that. Should i ditch the manure all together? What is "burn" exactly?
