Am I going to burn my plants with my manure

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I just mucked out the coop yesterday.  It's their run which I lightly clean twice a year maintaining with a thin layer of pine shavings when it gets icky.  I got into the back corners yesterday and since I figured it to be the most composted I used it around the base of my tomatoes, peppers and squash... but it smelled pretty ripe!  I topped the smelly stuff with dried leaves to keep the smell down.  I usually only add the deep litter stuff to my existing compost pile so now I'm worried it will be too strong.  We're very dry here too. 

 

Should I take it off?

 

Thoughts?

I've been giving chicken "poo" to friends to use on gardens for years. Some say it is too strong, but it works great!
