Can you plow them under for fertilizer?

¬* I could , but I'd rather leave them out in the woods for the
carrion-eaters .

when you have poor garden soil, extra road kill
is one of the best things you can add to it, just
bury it deeply enough and the other animals won't
bother it.

i've been burying everything in the gardens here
for years and the soil is getting pretty good by
now in some gardens. have way too many to improve
all of them at once so i pick a few each year to
add more things too. it all helps. organic
matter and trace nutrients in all life is best to
not waste when the soil is poor.

if i had a tougher stomach i'd pick up road kill
other than what gets hit out front. it's that
valuable... a few deer or a connection to a
meat/deer processor would be interesting, but i
have memories of my first gf's business place
where they chopped up beefs and some barrels that
stank beyond stank. just no real stomach for
that sort of thing. wish i had.

Same thing happened to all of our tomatoes. One day they were loaded,
and the next day hubby goes out to pick them green and they're all gone.
