Leaf season has begun! And it could last until Christmas. Seriously. It will snow in November/December but we will get a thaw and then we will get back out there and work on the oak leaves knocked down by the winter weather. And then next March we will have one last round of cleanup. But right now its not a huge chore. The lightweight Poplar, Maple and London Plane leaves are the first to come down. This used to be Ash leaf season but all of our many ash trees have died and most have been removed.
|Shredded leaves keep the cabbage patch tidy and weed free.|
|Not only does mulch keep the soil cool and moist it |
prevents rain water from splashing up onto plants.
|Eight blower bags of Maple leaves compacted and ready to tie up.|
|Another four blower bags of London Plane leaves.|
It sure would be nice to get it all into one bag.
