[MittleiderMethodGardening] re: grow box sawdust


I, too, have used the pine shavings that are intended for animal bedding, mixed with the coarse sand, in a new grow bed.  We got a great harvest of Japanese sweet potatoes from that new bed last summer (we started with just 4 sweet potatoes from which we grew slips from, and ended up with 161 pounds of Japanese sweet potatoes!)  I also grew cotton in the same bed (which I grow for the fiber, to spin for yarn).  The bedding/sand broke down nicely over the winter and we're doing Japanese sweet potatoes and cotton again in the same bed this year.  Everything eventually breaks down, no matter how coarse or fine.
