Had a thought-which can be dangerous. I cannot justify the cost of the so-called waste-free seed. The accumulation of debris under my feeders is considerable. While burning leaves, thought what if I place them in an area via hooks or something like MalVeauX's mobile feed stand where I can temporarily relocate in the fall while I burn leaves etc. during fall clean-up in that area? Wonder if that would significantly reduce the hulls, etc.
Return the feeders after clean-up is completed, spread a layer of combustible mulch and and repeat the following year. I also have a supply of brick pavers I could use to make a fire ring to somewhat control the area.
Anyone do something like this? Thoughts?
