Corn husks for making soil (and halting weeds)?

mbat(6)July 7, 2013

Just wondered what you PC experts think about using corn husks (from the grocery store) as a mulch and weed inhibitor? The husks that I have gotten are all husks and stalks -- very little corn.

I'm not an expert, but I can think of no reason why not.

Well, in theory it could be advantageous to bury green husks thus composting and releasing the nutrition into the soil, rather than leaving on the top where the nitrogen will go atmospheric as your greens turn brown. But that is really nitpicking.
