Composting Sweetgum Balls
Believe it or not, I’ve actually tried this. It seems to work best in a really hot batch but not as the primary ingredient. I use them as ‘brown’ material, but not very much. Probably adding some extra green helped out too. I screen all my compost so what happens is that after about the third or fourth time through they simply disappear. If you’re using a three bin system, be sure to mix in a little more green–grass clippings, ect.–each time you turn a batch with gumballs. This seems to help them digest a little.
