hi folks,
Just curious if anybody has resources or experience to share on adding black locust saw dust to the compost bin. Obviously a rot resistant wood so would decay slower, but that could give more loft to the bin until it breaks down - which it will... Besides that, can the black locust be a problem in the bin? We don't have a ton of it, but some. It would be used in a composting bucket toilet then added to a larger bin of various browns including leaves, straw, paper, etc. so if it takes longer to breakdown, I'm not that concerned, since we let the humanure bin site for 3 years anyway.
