So I took 6 months worth of pine shavings and chicken poop from the coop and put it in a cylinder made from 2x4 fencing, with a lot of water added it heated up to 160F. Then I let it sit for a year...and ended up with this mass of 'roots'. I surmise they may have come from nearby trees and moved up into the pile from the bottom, there is no greenery sprouting from them, I actually potted some up and watered them to see if they'd sprout. Anyway instead of luscious soil, which I may have had if I had tended the pile more, but I've got this and not sure what to do with it. Basically it is organic matter, but not sure I should use it in a raised bed(mixed with some other soil of course) to grow veggies or toss it out into the woods. Not sure if they would decompose into a nice soil component or 'grow' into a larger mass. So..... what you would do with it?
