corn and shit

Yes, corn likes shit, and choclo means corn in South America.  Time to start thinking about shit and feeding  this year's corn patch.  In years past, I've been feeding mine mostly chicken shit.  Bird shit is very good since birds both shit and piss from one hole and piss is high in nitrogen and often lost from those critters with two places to get rid of their waste - they often piss on the ground, as I like to do- food for other critters.  I like to spread it around or piss on my compost pile if I'm close by.
