Years and years ago before we began growing as many acres of vegetables as we do now, we didn't need all the manure (now don't turn-up your nose about manure, this IS a blog about gardening)-------anyway, our purebred Nubian dairy goats produced more than we needed.


  Every week we would bag the well rotted, composted, manure into recycled grain sacks and haul it into market.  I sold out every week, once people tried my

 they would stand in line for more.  It is great to top dress any veges that are yellowing,  roses especially love it.
The task of filling the sacks usually fell to my oldest son at the time.  He used a large metal scoop shovel so of course I called him my ''SUPER DUPER POOPER SCOOPER''.

 Years have passed since then.  He along with his beautiful wife just graduated together from college with a Bachelors of Science Degree.  He was honored, and privileged, to be the student speaker at the commencement.  My  hat  (the straw one held together with  duct tape) is off to you feller.  We are so proud of you and your accomplishments.  (we think his amazing wife is his greatest accomplishment).   He has been hired by one of the top companies in the U.S.  Not bad for a farm boy from out in the middle of nowhere.
