    Talking spinoff: what can I plant (using my mountains of compost) that my horses won't eat

    so I've got a lot of manure and compost. and I've got a lot of full sun spots to plant, problem is nothing is out of reach of the horses.

    What can I plant that my horses won't eat?

    I'd love to do some morning glories along some of the ugly fencing, something really invasive and twisty and tangly. Roses around the barn perhaps (roses love manure right?)?

    or, conversely, what can I plant that is good for my horses to eat? chamomile? fenugreek? dandelion? marigolds? pole beans???? watermelon or pumpkins? cukes?

    spring is coming... I am *willing* it to arrive by thinking spring thoughts. besides all the seed catalogs are starting to arrive

    LOL, ivy is poisonous though...

    just suck it up and plant stuff even the horses can enjoy! sunflowers, corn, beans, carrots...herbs are always good...

    ah. morning glories poisonous?

    sunflowers are a great idea!!

    I can grow beans? I'll grow a wall of beans if thats safe for horses, my fencing is basically a 5' trestle.
