Hi All,

Good idea. Simpler method is to buy some lambs in early spring. Just have
to be "store" quality. Put them in over the prospective garden beds with a
bit of electric to confine them. Great for intensive manure. Great for weed
containment. Come winter knock them on the head. Bingo. A freezer full of
curries and casseroles. Garden beds heavily mulched with sheep poop and no
weeds. A win - win situation. Except for the lambs of course.

Regards,
Ron...
