The Manure Cabana is in action...

Happy grazing kids:

Big news:
The Manure Cabana is in action. Bin #1 is occupied, and covered by our cool FarmTek CompostTek fabric stuff that they make for composting! Who would think that there is a special fabric that keeps compost covered to aid in composting and lets the heap breath? Well, we all know now anyway. It's great.

We have about 6 days of manure in there, the bin is about 25% full, and Ahhhhhh... the sweet smell of... nothing. No smell. Yeah baby. (well, if you stick your head way in there it smells, but right now after mucking I smell a lot more like manure than the heap).

And, it's cookin' as you can see with this morning's reading using our fabulous FarmTek compost thermometer. 150* in the stuff.

Non horse people just can't understand the things we get excited about it, lol.
