I have to borrow my husband's truck for this and I really try not to touch anything twice, including bags of steer manure/compost blend, not because I have a problem with touching "steer poop," as my husband calls it, but for labor's sake. Last year it was pouring down rain and I didn't want to spread it in the rain (I spread it in the rain on previous years), but my husband wanted his truck back and I didn't know when we'd have a nice day, so we had to unload it.
So we unloaded it and stacked it in front of the porch; way too much touching: I had to unload it onto a cart at Home Depot, load it into the truck, unload it from the truck, then pick it up and spread it. I was short about 20 bags, so this year I decided to get most of a pallet. I had the Home Depot people make a pallet of 60 and use the fork lift to load it into the truck. Now all I have to do is pull one bag at a time out of the truck, cut it open and dump it out wherever I want it. ONE TOUCH!
Plus this year it's not raining and I have a rare 2-3 day window of opportunity to spread it. My husband will want his truck back tomorrow, although if need be, I'm sure he'd let me use it another day. But it's rather warm out and the wind is blowing, which means it could be blowing clouds my way, which means my window of opportunity could slam shut any time now. This is the Northwest after all and the sun is only allowed ONE TOUCH!
