Mulching in the Fall

It was a pretty dry fall, so the falling leaves were easy to gather. We spread them on all the flower beds around the house. It's certainly colorful.

Let's see what it does for the soil for next year's garden.

This is the new compost bin. All of its contents are new. Mostly leaves and shredded garden trimmings, layered with horse manure.

I hope it will be done in time for spring planting.

I try to turn it every week or two. But there's kind of a lot of it.
