Anyone in GA know a Cowart Mulch Products out of Sugar Hill, GA?   The local snazzy "pond landscaper" is selling their products.
Will call them tomorrow... but I suspect I won't get anywhere with whether it's contaminated. See photo of bag. (If I can get it inserted. Will try cut and paste; nope.)

Ok, I found their site:  https://www.cowartmulch.com/soils-aggregates/soils.html

And this on their products list there:

Sugar Hill Composted Cow Manure: General purpose soil amendment conditioned for growing healthy plants and vegetables.

· Natural fertilizer for optimum plant growth
· Loosens and aerates heavy soils
· Adds organic ingredients and nutrients to the soil

Available in bags only 40 lb (18KG), 60 bags per pallet



p.s. I can get bags of chicken manure - how do I know it's composted enough? If I knew this, I've forgotten.
People around here want a terrible price for a little bit of rabbit manure. Seems terrible to me, at least.

Please remember that only one of your 5 composts should be manure-based.

Always inquire whether the product in question contains peat moss.  If so, it isn't a candidate for your SFG.

If you want to use rabbit manure, see if you can find a rabbit breeder in your vicinity.  

When shopping for chicken, I try to find those that are labeled compost, rather than manure.  In addition, a strong ammonia smell is a dead giveaway that it isn't sufficiently composted.

I looked at the website and it looks like they may have 3 different products that will work.  All manures count as one of your composts in the blended compost part of Mel's Mix.  I wouldn't waste time chasing down rabbit beans at this time.  You can just go with a composted cow manure without added peat moss.

Be prepared to screen all bagged composts made with wood products as a "brown" material.  In fact, with declining quality of composts these last two year, this has almost become a necessity with even the composts we have loved and used over the years.  The wood fines can go in the flower beds or into a compost pile. The straws, bottle caps and rocks go into the garbage can.  It's now the "new normal".

Build a compost screener with 1/4" hardware cloth attached to a wood frame.  Make it large enough to span your wheel barrow or other collection container. 

Sugar Hill Organic Humus - Organic compost made from bark fines, wood, manure and food products

Sugar Hill Composted Cow Manure or Black Kow Composted Cow Manure [Limit all manure-based compost to 20-25% of the total blended composts.]

Mushroom Compost [it shouldn't contain any fillers like peat moss]

[ Somehow this did not post yesterday. ]

Thanks, Sanderson.  The Cowart customer service people never emailed me back.

And I think the "pond building" company where I saw the cowart products
will not know really what's in their product, from the way I've had trouble
getting info on their bulk stuff. 

But I'll call them and see if they have more of the product line than the one bag
I photographed.

Sad news about the state of compost quality. But it helps to know that everyone
is struggling with it since lockdown, and that it just has to be worked around.
