We use all our droppings in our garden.  Great fertilizer.

We use the droppings to spread over our garden in the spring before we till it under.  You'll have some beautiful tomatoes among other things in the summer.  The only thing when adding the droppings to your garden you dont want to put it around your plants' stems directly unless you keep it watered or cover it with dirt.  The nitrogen will burn certain types of plants if put on directly and sun hits it for a while.  I have people that come here asking to buy this stuff.  After a brief sanitizing process I let them help themselves to under my pens.  Keeps it nice and clean at no expense to me.  Probably could sell it if I wanted but I'm happy with a clean pen!

Want to see and smell something sick?  Many farms around here are putting biosolids on their fields instead of fertilizer.  The cows eat the grass-you eat the beef and drink the milk--you get the idea.  The biosolids are human waste coming from the big cities such as New York.  You can smell it for miles.....

In Germany, they used to pump all of their sewage onto their gardens and fields.  The whole place constantly smelled like the bottom half of a septic tank. I don't know if this is still a common practice or not.     :laugh:

Even we recommend our customers to make use of droppings. In some cases it acts as the best fertilizer that is needed. Still if you are unsure of using it for your tree kindly take a suggestion from a tree professional or a certified arborist.
