Then every fall and again in the spring we rake them up (leaving some for the critters). While my husband bags away, I desperately try to find places to compost them in my yard.
|I could fit some more on that pile.|
|I didn't have quite this many. Thanks Mary's Veggie Garden for the photo.|
THE LEAVES I DO KEEP ARE ESSENTIAL!
I pile up leaves next to my compost bin and pile more in another corner of my yard. Those leaves will be perfect for balancing out and burying the food scraps I add throughout the year.
Reminder! Now that spring has arrived you should aerate or turn your compost bin. Add some extra leaves if your pile is too wet from all the winter food scraps.
Happy spring and happy composting!
