Composting Question

November 17, 2009

Back Yard Garden Fall 2009

In a few days I will clean out parts of the two beds closer to the front of the photo of my back yard garden. I’ll leave the Kale, harvest the rest of the beans and leeks, pull out the weeds and continue to enjoy the marigolds and broccoli as it goes to seed. The leaves will get blown in to piles for composting. Here is the question: Should I pile them in the lower bed and empty spots in the others like mulch and then turn what is left under in the spring and why?

    The leaves will be a good mulch for you. I have a problem with them blowing, so if you can hit them with the mower or something to keep them from blowing back into the yard. Great nutrients.

      So noted. Actually, the leaves are mostly damp. It is drizzling again this morning and has turned quite chilly. Thanks Janet.
