Different approach to pre winter mulching

Well as I was raking up the massive amount of leaves on my front yard and trying to squash them all in to the yard waste bin, i thought couldn't I use this as mulch.

So off I went to do some research and found that yes leaves can be a very good mulch. It decomposes well and costs nothing. There are some concerns about ph levels being effected in the soil but this is only after regular repeated use. Another bonus it looks very pretty and natural.

So the past 2 days I have been busy raking and distributing my leaves. I will just have to see how it goes with this horrible wind that has now blown up.

I love when I can reuse something to save money.

Fall Gardens

Well we are about to get our first freeze tonight which will mean all my flowers that were making a little come back will be gone. I am sad about my pretty rose bush as it seems I was about to get the best rose of the season. I might have to go out and cut them today so I can watch them bloom inside.

I decided to go looking for fall garden pictures and found these. The last 2 are from the whitehouse gardens.

Looking out my fall door

We found this kitty cat up in the soy bean field today having a look, lucky for her she ran before our dog got wiff of her. I figure she was out exploring and enjoying the cool weather like the rest of us. The weather is finally cooling down and now we are just waiting for our first freeze to kill all the nasty allergies and give a break from gardening season. I dug up my elephant ear bulb today and covered him for the season, the other one looks like something had eaten it half up.

Here are some photos from thismorning!!
