Some of the leaves had been mowed with grass, so had the greens and the browns already mixed, just as I wanted. But there were several bags of dry, unchopped leaves. I emptied six bags into this 4'x4' enclosure, layering three bags of each.
I stacked eleven bags of chopped leaves/grass clippings on one side of the bin.
And six bags of chopped leaves/grass clippings on the other side of the bin. As the ones in the bin compact down, I can begin adding these.
Five more bags, some chopped and some not, are waiting to find a place to live for the winter.
As well as another stack of what looks to be 10-11 bags of mostly unchopped leaves.
All told, she had brought over about 38-40 big bags of leaves. I was wanting maybe 8-10 bags. While I was moving and stacking them today, she hollered over and asked if I wanted more. NO! NO! NO! Thank you, but NO!
I wanted to spread the remaining leaves on the garden then till them in, but Mr. Granny refuses to help me get the tiller out and started. I guess I'll hope for a warm winter day when I can try to get it started myself. We're expecting cold days and possible snow this week.
