Its true. When I was in grade school, my Dad used to buy truckloads of "USED"
horse stall straw. Horse manure in the straw bedding. Us kids were tasked with spreading each load around the 1 acre veggi garden. Not only did it loosen up the soil, the vegis grew REALLY well.
I have GREAT soil where I live now, so I will just add the Chicky-poo-compost-pile on top of it
