    Leaf bags?! Those leaves should be put in a compost heap to be eventually returned to the soil so the trees will grow more leaves.

    Around here, compost doesn’t work too well. The temperatures are just too low for most of the year for bacteria to work effectively.

    I await the day I can get to the last panel. He’s only 5.

    Nor in New York. Yet another hippie scheme that turns out to be hot air.

    Trust me, it’s more work to get them to do the work than it is to do it yourself. But as a father, it’s your duty to get them to do the work.

    To compost or not to compost. Just Google it if you want to compost in a cold climate.

    The ambient temperature has not a darn thing to do with composting. A properly constructed compost pile with both dry and green materials and a bit of water is all that’s required. Those bacteria will have a ball and THEY heat the pile. I’ve had piles at the requisite 160 F for sterilization of seeds in the dead of winter.

    And decomposition happens anyway. I don’t think that there’s a spot on earth where all the dead plant material that’s ever been produced is just sitting there, the same as the day it fell.

    I’m glad my Dad wasn’t “Lord of the manor.” We did chores (farm and home) together. We’d crack each other up. He said he gave me his sense of humor. I’d say I was trying to give it back. Now I’m glad I kept it.

    Completely agree, it’s better for your lawn, it’s natures way of protecting it from the damage that winter can cause.

    For leaves, I just use the bagging option on the lawnmower—too many leaves to mulch. But the chopped up leaves that get put on the compost pile turn into wonderful black dirt by springtime.

    Composting is a “Hippie scheme” to you? Composting is the logical thing that happens naturally if allowed to.
