Organic matter in the making

We had a beautiful and late autumn color season this year. And when the leaves decided to fall, they went all at once. Since then, R's been working on gathering them up. He mowed a few more in this year than last. Or, at least, that was the plan. But the pile actually looks bigger this year, so maybe not.

We used all of 2007's leaf mold pile a couple of weeks ago when we prepared our two active garden beds for winter. So, we're feeling pretty good about the sustainability and usefulness of this project -- even if it does involve many hours of dirty work to make the pile.
