    Hello all! 👋

    My boss has just dumped this large pile of horse manure at my work for new beds.

    It’s very straw-y and clumpy. Is it decomposed enough to use for no dig?

    How can i tell?

    Plants are ready to be transplanted now.

    Cheers,
    Joe

    Looks fine to me, just break up the lumps after removing any larger clumps of straw.
    Old manure is rarely perfect compost, but I see lots of lovely dark lumps there.
    You can plant into it after spreading asap!
