That's a Load of Crap

Yes, that's crap, as in manure--composted manure, which is like gold in my garden world. I hauled load after load of it this past weekend. My neighbor was kind enough to give me a humongous pile of this manure last fall. I felt like a lucky girl that day. While I was spreading the crap--not so much. It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it. My cat, Katrina, thought it was the best day of her life. She expressed her happiness by rolling in each new drop zone and crushing my flowers. I am sure that one warm summer evening I'll be sitting in the garden--cocktail in hand, and I will look back on this chore with fondness. Ah, who am I kidding--it stunk.
