This week has been really chilly here. In one day I saw the leaves of our Mulberry tree and our Black Walnut come down like rain completely denuding it. It makes me sad to see the leaves fall. I know that winter will soon be here.
I rake all the leaves up...yes, even the black walnut leaves and make a pile. Then I take the lawn mower and run through the pile until I have a nice fine mulch. I place the mulched leaves over the plants to provide them with a nice warm blanket for the winter months.
