The plan to get manure this morning went to poop (ha ha ha!) when Rich & my dad couldn't get the uniloader out of the trailer that was supposed to haul said poop. They quickly switched to plan B and went to Portland Nursery to buy the compost we needed to prepare our beds, and we will make a trip to get the alpaca dung another day.
Rich carried all of the bags down the looooong hill to the garden shed, and from there we spread the mushroom compost, and then the planting compost evenly over the beds. This was like the blind leading the blind...neither of us have any experience getting beds ready to plant, but hopefully our backyard farmers can tell us if we really screwed it up next week when they come.
Kylin helped out by picking weeds, looking for earthworms (and buried treasure), and rounding up all of the stray empty compost bags.
