    Messy and time consuming work, commiserations.

    I take it you have tried to access additional land for strip feeding etc.

    Looks like you are having great enjoyment from your livestock, nice.

    Good quality poop that Dave, far from too late to add it.

    I have not spread any yet on my plot will wait for ground to dry out a bit more.
    Was thinking that this year I may try just the spreading on top rather than dig in what do you others do?

    I turn in if adding this late. If I spread in November, I let the frost and worms do it :)

    I was "gifted" 40lbs of Llama poo, supposedly great for flower bed compost.
    And the next really hot day. . . . . . . . . . .
    Mind you, llama meat doesn't taste like llama poo but still disagreeable.

    Not my alpaccas...my mates who I collect the manure off.
    I believe alpaccas is quite good and can be used fresh as it won't burn plants. First time I've used it so can't tell you any more..
    I did score three bags of wool free of him for projects. ..😆
    I've spread the manure but not dig in yet too wet at the mo d

    Put mine on between December and early Jan, aiming to be no dig and as we are oop north amd oop a hill I reckon it will be nicley sorted by worms by the time I am putting things into the ground. If not I can always dig it in amd put it on earlier next time.
    first few seeds in a tray on the window sill last Sunday, will slowly do a few more each week with an eye to April in the ground, via the greenhouse.
