Uses for sheep "garbage" - Jen

Discarded wool makes fantastic mulch for around trees, in this case a white pine sapling. It chokes out the weeds, holds in the water and the britch and belly wool have lots of organic matter that leaches into the soil with each watering. Bonus - its fun to watch the birds fly by with pilfered wool in their beaks.

End pieces of from woven fencing make great skirting tables.

And drying racks.

And my enterprising boys have made $25 so far this year selling sheep manure. One guy bought 7 bags of the stuff! I guess Andrew is saving for an I pod. Will will probably just buy candy...
