On top of my garage was a full 2 inches of densely composted material that I presume has built up over many years. Right above the garage are 2 trees that seem to shed hundreds of thousands of tiny seeds. I need carbon matter to balance all the fruit and veg peelings that I create and am wandering what the carbon content of a tree seed might generally be and could I use it instead of sawdust and in what proportions would I add them.
I don't know yet what the tree is but I'm thinking a birch of some kind (small, green, classic leaf shape about 1" long). I'm presuming that the seeds are nutritional dense as it needs to provide the young seedling with a start in life much like the contents of an egg to a hatch-ling. Not knowing what these nutrients are I wander if they will further imbalance the nitrogen levels of my kitchen waste.
