More Leaves!

I went to the recycling center again this morning to drop off another seven bags of leaves and weeds.  The leaves are still piling up in my backyard...and as you can see, there are some pretty big trees!   It looks like I'll be making 1-2 trips per week for the rest of the month.  I've begun to think about setting up a composting area in the back yard to take care of all these leaves (and eventually provide mulch for the garden), but it would have to be pretty big!


  1. Don't throw away your leaves! They are so good for your soil!

  2. Ok, ok...remember, I'm new at this. I'll find a place to save some of the leaves.
