    Ornamentmaven, if you grow your own vegetables you'll find that rotted leaf mulch makes great compost, you just need a place or container to compost it.
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,

    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    Mole - we don't have a vegetable garden anymore - just 2 tomatoe plants on the deck. I am partially disabled now and husband is always busy with his business. We used to always use our mulched leaves - but frankly, we have enough leaves for 15 or more gardens!

    I'll buy some new fleecey thermals when they come out about now, and then I'm ready for whatever winter thows at me.

    The first gale of the autumn is due from Sunday. I'm ready for it, and any severe winter that may come.

    Supposed to be a hard winter here as well. I have to laugh at my last post on this thread! I posted last september that we would NOT have bad weather until December! Well, we had a freak winter storm last HALLOWEEN with at least 10 inches of super heavy snow. We lost power for 4 days! Never say never!!!

    So, I guess within the next 2 weeks, we should check the shovels and procure lots of ice melt. We will start raking leavings soon as well and that is always a major project!
