Jim,

Have you read Joe's book?

Within it, you'll realize that throwing feces out the window and onto the garden isn't a smart idea.

When I was little I spent Summers in Ireland on the family dairy farm. It was in the 50s. There was no plumbing and/or electric. We used chamber pots. In the mornings my Nannie would empty our pot out the window (yes the stone house was built in consideration of this - but who knows when. It may have been centuries old. It had a thatch roof too).

Anyway, the farm hand would somehow pick up the stuff and chuck it on the pile of cleanings from the stalls and stables.

My aunts used to use the pile to fertilize the garden. This apparently had went on for generations.
I remember I used to go in the garden and eat the cabbage raw it was so good! Now I will tell you one thing ... to this day I have NEVER eaten fruit and vegetables like that, anywhere, in America, nor anywhere else for that matter, 'nd I bin a few places, mind ya.
