Fertilizer - Boost Your Garden - Hello Fellow Gardners! I have an offer you surely can't resist. A small pick-up truck load of partially composted horse manure can be delivered to your garden by my hard-working and delightful gardner. He shovels it into his truck, drives it to you and shovels it to a pile where you want it. I'm asking that you pay him 300 pesos for his work and gasoline. The manure is ready to use in all your garden beds...it will not burn your plants but rather will retain moisture and many times, within days of placing the manure around, you will see your plants look brighter and more healthy. This stuff makes an incredible growing medium alone or by amending your soil. It is also perfect to add into your compost! Take the whole load or share it with your neighbor. You won't regret it! I have an ongoing manufacturing process of this treasure and I'm hoping Pedro can take it to gardens all over town at least once or twice per month. Todos Santos or Pescadero....Let me know and I'll arrange it. Thank you! - Barbara Manfrediz, 612-142-2290, Todos Santos
