Composting and composting manure is an easy process and the end result will be the ideal fertilizer for garden plants and crops. Simply add your manure to the compost bin or pile and then add in equal amounts of straw and wood shavings. You can also mix in some grass clippings, leaves, and kitchen scraps (peelings, lettuce, coffee grounds, etc.). Mix the pile thoroughly with a pitchfork. Then take a hose and moisten but do not saturate the compost pile. Cover the pile with a tarp and keep it turned every two weeks or so, watering afterwards and covering again to maintain heat and humidity levels. Continue adding to the pile, turning the compost and watering until the pile is fully composted.
This may take anywhere from a few months to a year, depending on the size of your compost pile and any other influencing factors like heat. You can add in some earthworms or entice them with coffee grounds to help speed up the decomposition process.
For additional growing power, add some rabbit dung to the compost pile. Using rabbit manure compost in the garden is a great way to give plants the boost of nutrients they need for strong growth. With composted rabbit manure fertilizer, there’s no threat of burning plants. It’s safe to use on any plant, and it’s easy to apply.
