|Making Leaf Mould On The Allotment|
Last Autumn I spent a fair bit of time collecting fallen leaves - see my earlier blog post -
Autumn Allotment Jobs - Making Leaf Mould
Many bags of these were added to my leaf mould bin on the plot - and by the end of October it was pretty full.
Its spent all Winter composting down - and the volume has reduced by at least three quarters.
This is normal and exactly as expected.
In the Autumn I'll throw it onto the growing beds - to act as a mulch to keep weeds down - and to act as a soil improver.
Then I'll start collecting more fallen leaves to make more of this wonderful stuff.
