    try a bit of mulch ( sawdust or woodchippings) to use it's normal name, and plough them in or do the same with your cowshit.

    I heard about a bloke who recycled hs own cesspit to fertilise his land as well, not sure if he treated it first or not..

    Cheers

    I remember when I did mine up in Issan.
    I waited and one day I saw some dump trucks dumping nice black, rich-looking top soil nearby.
    That's what I was waiting for.
    I immediately got my Thai wife to go book that truck to bring the next 4 loads to my house.
    Paid a little extra (and a small bottle or whiskey) to get the good, black stuff.
    Everything growing like crazy now.
