Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day three hundred and fifty of that project.

This quilt block shows a set of sacks of fertilizer with a sign against a light blue background. The sign has a black fabric post and a tan fabric signage that reads, "Pony Poo $5.00". On each brown sack there is a label that reads, "Pony Poo" in black pen. Each sack, and the sign and post are outlined by a bright yellow stitching.

Our horse owners are enterprising and have found a way to capitalize on the waste product from the horse barn.

Compost it for a year and it makes fine fertilizer for just about anything.

On the farm, we compost all our animal waste. We use deep wood chip bedding and with the animals turning it all the time it composts right under their feet and wonderful compost is made.

With the exception of the early spring thaw, there is very little manure smell and it’s warm under their feet to boot.

A lot of people come in the spring and summer and get fertilizer for their gardens (veggie and flowers).

We also spread it on our fields in the fall. Building the soil, helping the planet.
