Manure Fertilizer

how to use manure?

Zone seven | pat martin added on March 23, 2012 | Answered

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.
