A Compost Everything Testimonial
One of the readers of Compost Everything: The Good Guide To Composting sent me a nice note yesterday letting me know he's already putting some of the ideas into practice:
Subject: Goat Head Cherry Tree
Tom at Entwood Hollow here.
After butchering two goats Wednesday, I gave the offal to the 10 pigs.
When they were done, two heads, several hooves, and some other bits remained.
I told Mrs. B. about your goat head fertilizer method. She did the girl shiver thing, then went and bought a Cherry Bing/ Van graft.
I dug a hole, deposited the remains of the departed, and then planted the new tree.
Then, I piped the kitchen greywater to a point 1 foot upstream of the rootball. We'll see how the Goat/Greywater system pans out.
Hope all is well for you.

Feeding goat remains to pigs and giving the rest to a cherry tree? THAT is extreme composting!
Pick up your own copy of Compost Everything and start burying goat heads underneath your cherry trees like a mad composting George Washington.
