Steer Manure from Home Depot
As of right now, I have most of my garden in containers. I have been potting with a mixture of peat moss, vermiculite and compost (worm castings), a la Square Foot Gardening. So far, everything has done well. In order to save some time and money, I picked up a bag of steer manure from Home Depot today to mix in with the worm castings and peat/vermiculite.
Now I'm wondering if it's going to burn my plants -- the bag does not say "composted" "aged" or "rotted" anywhere, just "Steer Manure." However, it does not look like what I've seen coming out of any cow, it looks like compost. It's not as fine and dark and soft as the worm castings, but it's not clumps of poop, either. Since it looks and feels more like dirt, is it safe to assume it's rotted enough to not burn the plants?
