Hi, Mr. C happy hi Not a dumb question at all. Fresh manure is from the animal. Composted manure is after the microbes, heat and time have finished with it.

I'm adding these two photos to this thread (with permission from the 2 new SFG gardeners that assembled their products).

MrCMB, you will find that at least on this forum, there is no such thing as stupid question. We have the best people on here.
I have been doing SFG on and off for a few years and I struggle with the compost mix too. That is easily the hardest part of the process, at least until you start making your own (so they tell me). If you cannot find 5 different sources, that is ok. Just do the best you can. The peat and vermiculite with 3 types of compost will grow quite a bit quite successfully.

Hopefully someone in your area (Michigan) can chime in with where they get theirs. I know the big box store in NC have mushroom, cow and chicken manure. I have found some horse manure for free on craigslist.

My only suggestion with the store bought stuff is to sift it first. I have found sticks, rocks and even cigarette butts in the bags I've sifted.

Also, thanks Sanderson for the pics. who knew there was such a thing as lobster compost

Mr. C, glad we could help.

RT, Lobster compost - if one hangs around this Forum, one learns all kinds of things. Camprn was the one who mentioned it.
