Is Applesource still in business? 

A buddy wanted to order (from Canada) and it seems not to link for him, whenever I click it now redirects to Douds site - which is fine but everything is out of stock?  Does anyone know what is going on?

Starting to get ready for the cold. Hardwood tree leaves suddenly
turned red. I still have some plums on trees.  The berries are gone.
I have trees loaded with many crab apples but nothing is after them.
I got a flatbed truck of composted cow manure delivered this morning.
I prefer horse manure but it not very available here.  I had a load
of bison manure once.  It was good but not available now.  I use
commercial fertilizer sparingly because it burns and also kill worms.

What about goat?  And my chicken house could use a cleaning also.  And I
have donkey.  All free for the shoveling.

Actually in winter when they tend to stay in the shelter more and poop on
the floor.  That  is when I do the most manure gathering.  As long as
conditions are decent, not too boggy and not too slick, we just dump the
muck buckets in the garden, sheet composting.  The winter rain leaches it
into the ground and then it gets tilled in spring. When conditions are not
good for sheet composting it gets pilled along the fence line and works as a
mulch. 

Still pretty warm here, tomatoes, cucumbers, plums,peaches, grapes and
apples. Garlic is planted as are the Walla Wallas for next year.

Goat poop comes in pellets and is great for the garden.  Chicken poop
can burn plants.

Had a really bad experience this morning.  I was walking around my
trees
and a bear was just sitting there without moving or making a sound. 
I didn't see it until I was just a few feet away.  I almost had a
heart attack.  Moved away quickly facing him but the bear didn't
move. I have had trouble with bears when I used to hunt them so I an
wary of bears when you mess with them.  I will just let him be.  The
ground is littered with small apples and plums.  I grow them for the
animals.

Glad you are okay!  I guess the bear heard you were growing fruit for the
animals ;)
