Hurray! I have a whole side yard full of year-old leaf compost that has burst from the garbage bags. This weekend is the "gather it up to mulch the veggie beds" project!

Your tip is RIGHT ON TIME!!!!!

I will now!

I had already spread a first layer over some newly planted cabbage, spinach & beet seedlings, and I kept thinking, "it's gonna take me forever to spread this leaf mold without getting it into all the nooks and crannies!"

Can't wait for the weekend, LOL! I tip my hat to you.
