  • Save your leaves

       Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fowl swoop.  We rake and pile, and they jump.  

       I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy: Adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer. At the farm, raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (within reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.
