Need to vent...ACE composted manure
I've often used this stuff for side dressing and mulch in my small garden. I don't have room to store(or anywhere to get) non-commercial stuff as I'm in an apartment, so I usually swing by the hardware store and toss a bag or two into the car and keep it there until I need it. Well, I ripped a bag open today and it looked like black sand...and felt like it, too. There was hardly any smell...usually it has a nice earthy smell. I rolled the bag over to see if I grabbed the wrong one(thinking topsoil?), then I realized it read "Composted Steer Manure...with organic material". The organic material part was of course in smaller print. I'm so disappointed. Can't a person buy a decent bag-o'-poo anymore? Is it just ACE, or are all the stores selling crummy soil products lately? I guess I'll have to have the next bag opened before I decide to buy it.
Anyway, thanks for reading my rant.
