Being the eco-frugalista that I am, I refuse to fork out big bucks for sh*t from a company hundreds of kilometers away. I was thinking of heading out to the race tracks as I heard they have a manure bin where people can load up their buckets for free. But another gardener told me race horses are usually pumped up with "stuff" to make them excel at their job. So I decided to not go that way as I am not aiming for giant sized vegetables that will give me muscles in very strange places.
Another solution was to head to a property where city folks keep their horse. These are just regular horses owned and loved by individuals. Outside the property gates are bags of manure for only $2 that you just pop into an honesty box. And apparently if there are no bags of manure you can go in and ask if the Poo Fairy will fill a bag for you. Now that is my kind of Fairy. A win win all round. I get cheap sh*t and the horse owners get a few bucks to put towards their horses, it's local and the plants love it.

Do you splurge or keep it cheap?
