SECRETS of a SEED SCATTERER: Seeds, Cuttings, Divisions, Tubers, Bulbs -- growing in the Coastal South.
Hi Jean!I came here at random, thought I'd leave my greetings as I floated on through...Re that leaf-raking, are you talking about LAST Wednesday, in December?If so then BOY do you have good weather where you are!!!haha!!OK all the best to you!;->...fromGledwood"Vol 2"...
We have been raking the pecan leaves here too. There are way too many of them. The sad part is that I am not allowed to have a compost pile.
Well, actually it was today, the 12th of December and it was 80 degrees. It will get colder soon, but winter is a day at a time here.The pecan leaves have mostly fallen. The oaks hand on to some of theirs until near spring. As we were sweeping these, more were falling, one big leaf at a time. Mixed in are some redbud leaves and pine straw.There's ryegrass seed to throw out when this chore is done. I love green grass in mid-winter.
I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
