  • Save your raked leaves for mulch and compost

    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 (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.

    There are two categories of garlic to consider: Allium sativum, or soft-neck garlic and Allium ophioscordon or hard-neck garlic.
    Soft-neck garlic is the easiest and most widely cultivated because the bulbs are large and the cloves and skin are tight, which prevent moisture loss and allows for longer storage.
