Somewhere down the line, we have forgotten the basics of nature, instead opting to overanalyze chemical reactions we do not comprehend fully.
I saw a deer s### in our hayfield the other night. That's raw, untreated sewage! Now it will be in the hay,. which gets fed to the cattle... oh, my
God! The cows will be full of untreated sewage! Those cows will be sold as meat and I will be eating... deer s###!
Come on... get real. You ever eat catfish? Do you have any idea what catfish are? They are the septic system for whatever body of water they are in.
You could catch a catfish with a turd if you could get it to stay on the hook. They eat the crap that settles to the bottom! And they are
People pay good money at the department store around here for fertilizer and potting soils that are in reality nothing more than dried up, ground-up
cow droppings. Then they scream when a dog pees on their flower.
I'm sorry, folks, waste is called F E R T I L I Z E R
out here. There is no E.Coli bacteria swimming around in the ground, sneaking into a
root, climbing the stalk, and sitting there waiting inside that juicy tomato for you, all the while laughing evilly. mwa-ha-ha!
The E.Coli and
other bacteria die and are broken down by the soil into their individual pieces, which then get sucked up by the roots and turned into food. It's not
like a jigsaw puzzle or a lego set; a human, a plant, or an animal is not just a building made of little chunks of the things they eat. Food is broken
down into chemical components, no longer alive, before it can be used.
The dangers come from E.Coli and other bacteria/viruses getting into your digestive tract alive. Wash your hands before you pick the lettuce, then
wash the lettuce. You'll be fine. If you're wiping your butt with one hand and and picking with the other, rotating every ten minutes, then you
deserve to get sick, just so the evolutionists can be happy. That's where the dangerous stuff comes from, not from plants growing in 'contaminated'
As for chicken waste 'burning' plants, yes it can. It's too potent when fresh. The best thing to do is to put your chicken waste on your garden in
the fall, after the harvest, and let it leech into the soil all winter. then when you till it, you give things a final mix and the plants come out
healthy and happy and very well-fed. One chicken dropping, ten chicken dropping, heck 100 chicken droppings will just fertilize, but when you put a
few hundred pounds of the stuff... well, you just overconcentrated. That's different from poisoning.
But then again, what do I know? I have only been around farming for a half-century, and this area has only been being farmed by my ancestors since the
mid 19th century.
I know some of you are young, and you have these ideas on how to make things safer and better, but... take a look at what has been known and
successfully used for the last couple of centuries, then figure out how to make it better. Don't listen to those idiots on the 6 O'clock news;
they're just there for the paycheck. [/rant]
