I got cow manure from our local sales barn and put about 2 inches around my exsiting green pepper and tomato plants (on top of the soil). Is this ok?

Cow manure is so rich and gets very hot. The odds are you will probrably burn your plants up. The best way to use cow manure is before planting mix it in to your soil.
