We have those dreaded Sweet Gum trees and their precious offspring--prickly sweet gum balls *spits*
It's soooooooooooooooooooo hard to rake and bag and rake and bag, so we burn the nice leaves in the area b/c the d*** sweet gum balls are EVERYwhere...
Question 1: could a compost pile get hot enough to kill the sweet gum seeds inside the balls? or are we better to continue to TRY to burn the things?
Question 2: it's time to clean out the fire pit, so LOTS of wood ashes... ok for the compost bin?
