What can I do with all of the pine needles that fall off the pine trees in my yard?

    If you’re creative and patient you can make baskets out of them. You can decorate them in your home and add it to your list of hobbies/abilities.

    GardenGuides.com suggests (1) using pine needles for mulch with plants that grow in acidic soils, such as rhododendrons and azaleas, (2) making pine needle tea by steeping 3 tablespoons of pine needles in a quart of water, and (3) making baskets (instructions found here). Pine needles are also a great fire fuel, so you can save some for your next campfire too!

    You can compost them, of course. You can also make pine needle sachets or pine needle potpourri to create that wonderful pine smell in your home.
