Well, I probably made a big mistake in getting timothy hay, as I have now heard Paul say it is treated with broadleaf herbicides. Any suggestions on how to make use of this organic matter in a way that won't end in me eating petrochemicals or seriously damaging the plants I'd like to grow? I don't know the origin of it, so I have to assume it was probably treated.
I was going to use it as filler and/or mulch in some hugelkultur beds and elsewhere. Now I'm not sure what to do with it. Any advice would be appreciated.
