(RQ:Shakespeare Richard 2 Q1)
(quote-journal) (Gardening)| date=21 April 2014| page=G7| passage=The very wet winter will have washed much of the goodness out of the soil. Homemade compost and the load of manure we get from a friendly farmer may not be enough to compensate for what has leached from the ground.
Any fertilizing substance, whether of animal origin or not; fertiliser.
(ante) (w), "Lecture VI" in ''Elements of Agricultural Chemistry'' (1840 reprint):
- Malt dust consists chiefly of the infant radicle separated from the grain. I have never made any experiment upon this manure; but there is great reason to suppose it must contain saccharine matter; and this will account for its powerful effects.
Rubbish; nonsense; bullshit.
2005, Ginny Aiken, ''Design on a Crime'' (page 217)
- “You know the police think I killed Marge, don't you?”“What a load of manure! I couldn't believe it when I read the paper.”
