I have the choice between two piles of horse manure. One option is to use the 4 years of built-up manure in the corner of the pasture where the horse lives. The other option is to use a large pile manure on the other side of the fence that has been sitting for four years.
I'm going to plant the garden in about a month or less so I was thinking that I'd take the more fresh stuff and put it over the garden area and then double dig it into the dirt right before I plant. Do you think the manure will still be too fresh? I'm worried that the 4 year old pile is too old. What do you guys think?
