I hope someone reading this can give me some advice. I have a great deal of cedar sawdust (a couple of Rubbermaid bins full). If I can use this in some way, I will, but if not, I need to know of the best way to dispose of it.
I have read that throwing it into the woods, onto the lawn, or mixing with other compost may not be the best choices because cedar takes forever to rot away, and when it is decomposing it leaches nitrogen from the soil.
It is also not a wise choice for a fire starter in a wood stove, because it explodes.
I could make some little sachets for drawers and dog pillows to discourage moths and creepy crawlies, but really ... the amount of sawdust I am dealing with is far too large for such a project.
So ... any ideas?
And that, my friends, tells you how I will be spending several hours of this glorious weekend. The amazing temperatures will finally melt away all the residual ice and snow imprisoning the construction debris and free the lake from its current dangerous state of being halfway between water and ice. I will have to work in small bursts because my hips give way, but the weather should be good for several such spurts of industry.
Happy Easter weekend.
