So, I stumbled upon a co-worker who dates a girl who rides horses (seven of them, in fact, though not all at once ) and generally just uses the manure for fill on a low spot of their 60 acre spread.
Long story short, I now have the 8' bed of my pickup filled with some nice, dried manure (been sitting out for a year at the ranch) and would LOVE to use this for my vegetables. I was planning to compost it as aggressively as possible with leaves, but only have enough leaves to equal the manure (not the 4:1 ratio or whatnot that's recommended.)
Question is - will this turn out okay? The compost is dried enough that I could probably just add it straight to the topsoil that I'm taking delivery on Friday, but I'd really like to use the manure to compost the leaves. Just want to make sure that I won't be making too aggressive of a mix, here.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
