Waste Not - Want Not

 Very little goes to waste at our home. I even save the saw dust from projects for this time of year when the snow melts and leaves soft spots on the ground. I wait until the ground is nice and wet in the late afternoon and spread the sawdust. It soon soaks up the moisture on the ground and stays in place until it is worked into the ground.  Sometimes I save wood chips from mulching limbs and use those but the saw dust seems to bind with the soil better.
The spot on the left was a large rock that I kept hitting when I cleared snow so today when it was loose I pulled it out, filled in the hole with mud then packed on the sawdust. Voila, newel post is fixed for Christmas Vacation fans...
