Operation Avoid Raking

Operation Avoid Raking.
I am usually able to avoid raking or mulching the leaves for a little while by using the logic that I need to photograph them and I need to wait until they are perfect models. We used to rake all the leaves and put them in a compost bin, and we still do with some of them, but with most, we simply set the mower to mulch and it becomes fertilizer for next year. It has all become part of our natural approach to our yard. It does attract insects, the insects help with the breakdown of the leaves, which in return attracts birds getting the insects. Most of the decay has occurred by spring, but the small insects that are there become the food source the nesting spring birds and their young. Remember nature knows what it is doing if we don’t interfere, plus I rake less.
