Just broke ground and smells baD! Manure?? Normal?
There's no question. My husband came home from checking on our freshly dug lot (no not on or near a farm) and said "It smells like cow pie."
So I drove by today. Yup. Manure. Strong and true. Is this what newly dug dirt is SUPPOSE to smell like? Because we recently learned a sewage drain was removed when the lot was created (which is why we need peiring)we are a little sensitive to this... smell. But it's not human sewage smell... it smells like cow poop. Pig poop.
So... why? Any ideas?
