use of night soil is contraindicated

Yesterday when I was buying the tomato plants the greenhouse lady and I were talking about soil amendments, and she gave me this handy rule:  the smaller the animal, the less of its poop you can use.  Chickens, rabbits, etc. you can use about an inch.  Horses and cows, four inches.  Goats she thinks only about two.  I bet you could use six inches of elephant poop, so don't freak out if you've got a whole bunch of it lying around.  Blue whale just put the plants directly in the whale-pie, I guess.  Also don't use poop from meat-eaters (humans, bears, the Kraken).  You're welcome.
