Came across this article about starting squash seeds in horse manure balls. Has anyone ever tried it?

I have not tried it but am sure it would work. The manure is providing the heat to speed up germination of the seeds. If the seeds are sown when the soil is already warm, which is what is suggested for squash seeds, you need not go to all that trouble. Al
