My dad puts glass and a couple rocks in a concrete mixer for a while to round the sharp edges off and then uses it as gravel in the driveway. 



I've seen this done. Excellent walking paths.

As far as deer corn ... several years ago I emptied entire deer corn bags opened on the ground. Replaced it for several months when the piles were almost gone. The time came to stop feeding them. Underneath it all was a 2 inch thick layer of black goo. Very tar like but gooier. Did not seem biological or natural at all. Nothing would grow there but it was overgrown everywhere else around. Any guesses on what kind of corn it turned out to be? Gimme a G ....

A G... GROSS!! :D

I forget what "food" someone spilled once, that even the ants wouldn't touch. That can't be a good sign....

Me and Dan Boone were derailing this thread, so the conversation resumes on a new thread of it's own. If you are going to comment on any of the stuff about plastic bricks, or the financial reality of plastic use, please do so at the new thread. Financial Realities vs Waste

We return this thread to thoughts on Pioneers vs the Modern Homestead Trash!! :)
