What is a good way to store mass amounts of loose pine straw? I raked up a few small spots in the yard and have 2 piles and lots of yard left to get more from. I'd like it to not be in 18932 piles around the yard LOL What is a good way to store it so it doesn't get nasty before I want to use it for duck bedding? I was thinking maybe build a little bin for it and raise it up off the ground a tiny bit. But can it be open storage or does it need to be covered and fully enclosed? I live in Southern Alabama, so it is hot during the summer and not so bad in the winter - we had some good freezes last winter (my first here). So - suggestions?
