so far I have got 12 pick up load of sheep manure to go on the garden and flower bed

need about 15 more loads for this year for the garden

my main garden is 65 x 65 - several flower beds

the guy is giving me all the sheep manure that I need/want

 

this is the first time that I am using sheep manure in the past I just used what I had from the compost pile

 

should help the old garden next year

It should. I've never used it either but it can't be too much different that cow manure

GOOD STUFF!  I put a couple of pickup loads on part of my garden 2 years ago and that section still has blacker soil than the rest of the garden

I ended up putting 30+ pickup loads on the garden

his loader has a 6' bucket and he put 3 loads on each pickup load

 

had fun with my JD 110 with the loader on it leveling the first 20 pickup loads 

now I have to wait to level the rest because we still had stuff in the garden

 

once any the stuff is out of the garden I will finish leveling it and plow/till it in 

 

oh I forgot to tell you all that I have one of the Loadhandler for my pickup

they are great - very little the shovel off

sweep the pickup bed each time I unload so the the bed is clean so that it works the best

 

see the web site http://www.loadhandler.com/
