>Mrs. Isbell,
   After you give orders to Dan :-) to procure this natural fertilizer the
simplest method to eliminate most of the weed seeds is to cover with plastic.
The sun will heat up and cook the seeds. Clear or black, take your choice. I
use what is available and make sure to wet the pile down and seal the edges
to contain the heat. It also helps to bury the manure when the bed is prepared.

  If you want to hear about chemicals, let me know. Used properly, they can
reduce your workload;-/. 

*Work- I can still remember me Grandmother with;
        any job worth doing, is worth doing right-
and     any job, big or small, best do it right or not at all-

Take care and be well,
bob - in eastern North Carolina, USA   

Now if someone could tell me an easy cure for bermuda grass and nut grass 
control, it would make my day :-))
