Thanks for the warning ... I’ll put them in the burn pile instead, just to be sure. Really am not in need of any additional material for the compost heap anyway. We’ve got a semi-truck sized load of oak leaves that need to go somewhere :) I’m going to layer the leaves with litter from the donkey barn (have no shortage of that either).

Wood ash from the fireplace as an additional layer in the compost pen. I’m about ready to add a couple of side ‘compartments’ to the main pile, in order to store ash and donkey poo.

Have you ever tried winter squash or watermellon on a compost pile? My sister has horses so she has a lot of “COMPOST”,, Wondering if it’s just to warm to plant some winter crops ontop of a compost pile..
