how to use manure?
I have planted a very young vegetable garden. I hear manure is a good fertilazier for it. How should I use it? Should it be on top of the soil, mixed with soil then put on plants, or leave the manure as is and put under the soil? Thanks.

Manure is great for the soil and plants and there are many types of manure that you can use so finding it shouldn't be difficult. It is normally best to let it age some before use to prevent burning plant roots, as most types are high in nitrogen. You can also mix it in with compost. The manure can then be mixed into the planting soil. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/manures/the-benefits-of-manure-in-your-garden.htm
