THANKS TO THE KELLY BROTHERS FOR HAULING LOAD OF HORSE MANURE – 2nd wk in Oct. 2013

Developing a three acre organic horticulture holding is hard work, so any divine dig out is gratefully received. Recently while showing the parents around the churchyard of St Enoch’s in nearby Killinick, a divinely inspired horse neighed nearby to indicate a neighbouring stable. This led to meeting Dara Ward, the keeper of the horses and custodian of  a well rotted mountain of horse manure. Dara was happy to be rid of his mountain of ‘brown gold’ as long as we hauled it away.

Next stop, Richard, William and Walter Kelly, the resident hauliers and machinery experts in KIllinick. William then loaded up a tipper trailer and tractor. Lucky enough the gate was wide enough for the tractor. Tractors are big beasts now compared to the Massey Ferguson 135 I used to drive about on!

Right now the manure is being barrowed to the newly dug veg beds to rot down over the winter. More of that anon.
