Recently I made enough leaf mulch to fill all the flower planters around the house. Now I’ve noticed that the mulch is packing down – as it should – so I need to make more. Happily, we’re awash in leaves everywhere!

I plan to make enough mulch today to top off all the planters in the yard and then fill three more large leaf bags to store in the garage over the winter to be used in the spring.

I’ll work awhile, then come in to drink lots of water and rest a bit before doing another session.

Lots of good exercise today in a sunny, crisp fall day!

I’ve made two large leaf bags of mulch so far, and distributed them. Taking a break for lunch and then will go back out.
