Some folks cut down trees and mulched them so we got them to empty it into our yard. We've used some here and there, but then we just let the rest sit to start decomposing. This stuff is awesome now!

This tomato was nearly dead. We made a new raised bed with the soiled mulch from the duck pen and a couple of days later, it was huge! Like totally unbelievably huge! YAY duck poop!
