So I built a new raised bed for a strawberry patch. A local supply house had bulk mushroom soil. I decided after researching mushroom soil that this would be great for the berries. So I had 2 yads delivered. more then I needed but could use the extra for mulch for the rest of the garden and other berries. Great plan right?? Well almost. The guy didnt show up until after dark. i directed hoim around back and told him to dump it into the raised bed. He hit the mark perfect. Still going good. Until I went out to check out the mushroom soil. Well much to my suprise it not mushroom soil at all. Its straight fresh chopped horse manure and so green/ hot that you cant get close to it without sweating. No im not exagerating. It that hot.
Waht do I do now. How long until this stuff calms down enough to plant? I know there is a lot of variables but on average. Or what other options to I have? I have a good supply of grass clippings (green) and half composted leaves.
I need to get these berry plants out of our living room before the wife shoots me.
