We are working to get the backyard garden finished. Our neighbor Tom is bringing us leaves from his yard. He has a sweet gum tree and I’m going to have to look to see what the leaves will bring to the soil. All leaves bring organic matter to the soil, but different types of tree leaves bring different levels of nutrients with them. Whatever the levels are, it will be good food for the worms and all of the other little critters that live in the soil. I put a lot of coffee grounds in last year, Starbucks was saving them for me. I think I will get them to start doing that again. We also get some compostables from Momma Jeans. I got in some trouble last time because it smelled a little. I’m better prepared this time. Todd is saving me sawdust, and between that and the leaves, I should be able to control the odor.
