Leaves for compost

HEY LOOK!!! The free compost has arrived!!!

These leaves are a gift from nature for the “frugal” gardener. I don’t bag up leaves, I let them accumulate on my garden beds and provide a blanket of protection for perennial roots, bulbs and bugs.

Mixed with moisture from the soil and snow fall, the leaves will biodegrade and add nutrients back into my soil as well. Any excess that I sweep off pathways gets put into my compost pile as the brown (carbon source) to balance greens (nitrogen source) that goes into the pile from fall greenhouse clean up.

This is top quality material. And it’s FREE and arrives right at my feet every year. The ultimate garden convenience.
