Is it safe to use sheep manure that has not been composted?
Hello I was able to get some sheep manure from a farmer, some was from last fall some was from earlier this year. Being a noob gardener I didn’t compost the manure and mixed it with top soil, mushroom compost, peer moss, and vermiculite and filled my raised bed. I now have herbs, tomatoes, and peppers growing in my garden bed. Is t safe to eat my produce this year?
