    Manure, that has not been composted with other veg. matter. Manure piles do create toxic runoff; here in Ca. there are huge fines for not containing it and keeping it out of streams and groundwater. In my original comment I failed to say quality compost containing some manure that was introduced into the composting process; was not advocating a lot of manure, even then.
         Donttasemebro has exactly the right idea and I would bet has a beautiful garden and soil that is truly alive. I do appreciate all of your wonderful comments to my tiny addition of thoughts to the original essay.
