An Avalanche at Leaf Mountain20th February 2012 • In The Garden • Stephanie Donaldson
Not so long ago my leaf heap was a neat and orderly affair, but as I’ve tidied beds and paths it has got a bit out of hand and every time I add more leaves a mini-avalanche ensues. I’m not too worried though, there isn’t much to add now and as it settles I can gradually get it back behind the barricades. By the time next autumn comes it will have rotted down and I will be able to use it on the garden. Just in time for the whole process to start again.
