I spread it over the soil. I do this about now. I actually want the manure "washed" by the rain so that come the spring I'm left with a product that "stirs" in nicely with my top soil and any chemicals have disappeared. It helps create a fertile top few inches exactly where my veg need it. Over the years I have created a very good rich soil this way.
Im a no dig gardener except for the runner bean trench. For me, digging in compost, manure, etc., destroys fhe structure of the soil and deposits the manure too deep for the plants ro access it.
Agree about the chickweed daydaisy. This year's been the worst so far for me. Mind you, its easy to pull up of you see it.
