We can only compost so much stuff at a time, and some things we don't want to compost, due to pathogens or whatever. So, I got an idea: Why not just burn it, and use it as ash in the garden? Works great so far. We already use a wood stove to burn wood into ash for the garden. Our compost thing i...read more
