    Time to Fill the Mulch Bins

    Drove the 12 miles to one of the area Amish saw mills today for a load of "aged" sawdust. Click image for larger version.

    Unloaded this load into the big bin this afternoon & will go after another load in the morning. Saw dust is free for the hauling & they have an "english" hired to run their loader, four scoops fills my 16' trailer! ~~ Lowell

    Do you actually use it for mulch?

    Yes, my vegetable gardens are in the form of beds, not rows, everything gets covered with a couple inches of "aged" sawdust. Click image for larger version.

    I've used sawdust on this property for nearly 30 years now, keeps the weeds down & holds moisture. I haul it in this time of the year to "age" for next year's use. I add a little extra nitrogen when I work it into the soil in the fall.

    Just don't use it up against buildings because of termites & other bugs!!! ~~ Lowell

    Very nice grnspot110. Adding the nitrogen is a good idea.

    I wheelbarrowed several trips around the back of the shed to dump from the top. Now hauling around the bottom of the hill with the 83-420 & 17P cart. Click image for larger version.

    What's left will go in the smaller bin, about 1/2 load. ~~ Lowell

    That's a lot of sawdust. I like the idea of using it as mulch too and you can't beat the price
