Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Who knew?!!?

"Pet fur is full of nitrogen, one of the two main components that a compost pile needs. (The other is carbon.) While maintaining the perfect ratio of carbon and nitrogen in a compost pile can get tricky, it’s better to have more nitrogen in your pile than not enough. Excess nitrogen just means a stinky pile. If your pile doesn’t have enough nitrogen, however, it will slow down the decomposition process."

Ive been using dog hair in my container pots for years. They also help retain moisture, and has similar properties to perlite. Tomatoes love it.

Does it count toward your greens or your browns in the pile though? Birds don't usually leave mine long. they would like to steal it right off kye when he starts to blow.

We have a magpie that will land on spider grab a clump and fly off. And then last year i caught a chipmunk dragging dog hair into its tunnel. Wildlife is funny.

Greens. High nitrogen source. I'm taking a zoom gardening course from Cornell and this week was soil. So.. composting. They posted a chart and I was quite surprised to see pet hair. It was in the greens column. I had occasionally put dog/human hair in the compost pile but more a hoped for, but unproven, scavenger deterrent.

Browns are predominately carbon sources. My primary browns are newspaper. I have a leftover 104 count dishwasher detergent pac bucket that I use for kitchen scraps. I line it with a double sheet of newspaper folded in to sort of form a bag (I started doing this cause avatars would stick to the bottom and is have to scrape it out with my hands or a convenient stick.) Then I tear the rest of the section into 1"strips and put on the bottom for absorbing any liquids and odor. When I dump the whole mess in the compost pile, automatically has decent "browns to green" ratio. The newspaper, even on the bottom of the bucket, gives great odor control. Does nothing to stop fruit flies, though. That is only August/early September thankfully sand requires a soda bottle with a little wine or orange juice on the bottom.
