Scratch and Sniff

It is not uncommon for us to spread the manure from our animals onto the fields and pastures. What is uncommon is for that field to be situated right beside my house. I really wish I could make this photo a scratch-n-sniff so you all could enjoy the aroma of that evening. The smell endured for a day or so, but the nutrients will be available for veggies throughout the summer. Short term pain for long term gain. We will enjoy eating the produce all summer, even if this activity did foil Julie's plans to make smore's on the back porch that night. ;-)

Spreading Chicken Manure, oops... I mean organic
fertilizer on a future vegetable field.
