RE: RE: sod-to dispose or not dispose

Well- I had to move some of the sod out of the green barrel and into the
trash- which I already did.  Sorry, but I'm not fishing it out again.  I may
try this experiment next time I rip out somemore lawn, but I'm still
skeptical.  The grass to pottery clay ratio seems pretty bad in what I
ripped out, seems like it would take alot more amending than a little rotten
grass can provide to make it decent for seeds.  And, it'd need a compost bin
three times as big as I have available.  My new one I made ( which was
bigger than both barrel-style ones) is full again.- and that is without
putting sod in it!

margaret's got a good idea there. by the time the grass rots, the soil is
humus rich and great for potting or planting.
