Any idea what I can do with a yard covered with pond muck?We had our pond dreadged and now I'm at a loss. A cover crop perhaps? something like barley? The town says I have to dry out the muck and seed it before I can use it as compost. Any ideas? My husband is ready to kill me for saying I wanted the muck rather than have it carted out. I told him it was black gold!! silly me...

Hi miris,

I apologize for the belated reply to your comments.

Muck IS black gold. You are so right to want to keep it. Saying that, I am sure you could add some cereal seed and let it take advantage of all those nutrients. Your other option is bog plants but that would have to wait until spring.

Whatever you do, I wish you luck and nothing but the best of all things.
