Ahh, spring is in the air. That means it’s time to put the snow shovels away and get outdoors. (Unless, of course, you live in the southern hemisphere).
While we love woodworking, some of us also have a passion for getting into gardens to grow bushels of fruits and veggies or bunches of glorious flowers. If that’s the case, there’s a great way to make your shop waste serve your garden.
Gardening How To offers numerous tips on gardening know-how, and this particular page tells readers about the ins and outs of composting sawdust. Here, you will find out how much sawdust to add to your cooking compost pile, what kinds of things you have to add to help the compost cook and how to know when it’s ready for use in your garden.
Of course, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t use pressure treated or plywood sawdust in your pile, and walnut has natural plant killers in it. Other than that, happy gardening.
