Manure! My Favorite!
If you want to quickly and cheaply add nutrients to your soil, try some steer manure! This is great stuff - perfect for the vegetable garden and it is available in bags at any local garden center. Put about 2 or 3 inches of steer manure on your garden and then till it in or just turn it in by hand with a shovel. If it's hot (you can tell if it's hot if it smells stinky, like really fresh cow poop) let it rest for a few days in the garden after you turn it in to the soil. Then you are ready to plant. If you have already planted, you can carefully spread some manure on the surface around your plants and let the rain and the worms do the rest. The manure is rich in nitrogen and your plants will love it!!
