RE: Sawdust

Dana, sawdust is wonderful stuff if it's composted, but it requires a good 
amount of nitrogen (read manure) to get it done.  What I think it's even 
better for is for using on paths or driveways--eventually it forms a nice 
duff.  Just don't put it on or in your garden soil uncomposted--it will suck 
all the nitrogen out of the soil, leaving nothing for the poor struggling 

Barb, in Santa Fe, where when it isn't dry, it's muddy, so anything on the 
paths is a vast improvement.

Here's a new one for me.  My husband and I have generated a large
amount of sawdust working on the remodeling project.  Is there a garden
use for it?  Can it be used in the compost pile?  I hate to throw it
away.  It really seems like it ought to be good for something.
