Ayla, Iza, Marley and TBT mentioned that the bestest thing for leaves it to chew them up and leave them on the grass. Yep, mum says yes but we have so many leaves that they don't chew up well, then we have clumps of chewed up leaves that stay all winter. So we get rid of the worst of them by pushing them to the street. Then mum chews up the rest of them. Mum already did chew the the early fallers a few weeks ago. This is what has come down since Sunday, easy to chew up.
Mr Black wanted to know what happens to the leaves. Do they just disappear, blow back in the yard or what. It is the "or what". Actually the people who run our little village we live in come around with equipment, load them a truck and takes them away to a big pile where they get composted.
So when mum finished with cutting down all her flowers today, she hauled the stuff off to the compost place. You can see the big piles of leaves that get brought in from all over.
Shaggy and Scout plus Patches too, wanted to know if Virginger is getting cold outside. Yeah, it is getting a bit nippy. Mum will get her back into the metal monster room for the winter real soon. Although sometimes she does go out in the snow!
