maple seeds in compost
I think I have a good source of browns and probably P and K (not so sure about that) in the buckets of silver maple seeds we've been sweeping up. They are making a nice hot pile when moistened and layered with grass clippings. It would seem that seed material is extra rich in minerals?
I just thought I'd post it now, when the "helicopters" are in full swing in Z 7, and moving north steadily. We have swept them off the street, sidewalks, and raked some from the grass. Even if some of them germinate after the compost goes on the garden, it couldn't be more than what is already happening from the neighboring silver maple.
I'll be curious to hear the experts weigh in on this. I'm more casual and of the "put everything in the compost" type.
