Getting Back in Gear
Now that election season is over and I have securely delivered Virginia to the blue column, I am back here for garden clean up. I have decided that for the next week I will write EVERY day about SOMETHING in the garden, no matter how small. I have been editing myself lately saying ..."Who's interested in THAT?" or "I wrote about THAT two years ago." No more self editing.So let me tell you what I did yesterday. My compost operation suffers from a lack of brown. So I decided that this year I would use the lawn mower to "collect and chop" the leaves and bag them for use during the year. So simple !!! Make one pass under the tree and the basket fills right up. Slide a plastic bag over the catcher and turn it upside down.
