Flower Ave Garden Project: Donkey Sh*t

Yet another amazing friend coming through for me…A good friend Tony, a Cheirmoya and avocado farmer and rancher in Santa Barbara, drove down a truck load of his soil blended with donkey manure or “donkey sh*t” as he called it.

It’s beautiful and will be a great addition for my beds. I’ve inoculated it over a few days with some native soil from the original beds at the house to create a healthy microbiotic environment.

I am so thankful for these little gifts that continue to show up along the way and help on this journey.
