Each autumn, the very many tall majestic trees in her yard shed their leaves, which pile so high that if left untouched would likely bury everything, including her home. But late November, after the leaves have fallen save for a few who hold tightly to their branches, a group of five men arrive with bags attached to their back, leaf blower in hand and walk through the large property, loudly blowing a gazillion leaves off the stone pathways and the paved driveways, the garden beds and the grass and into the beyond, where her property ends and the next one begins. And there it lies, through rain and wind, snow and ice, until slowly it turns back into the earth, rich in nutrients, ready to sustain the next cycle of life. It occurred to her that she could tap into this cycle and hasten the process so that her garden could benefit from the nutrient rich soil. And so she purchased a leaf mulcher from @worxtools and set up the apparatus next to a large pile of leaves. Slowly she fed the leaves, crunchy and brown, into the funnel and watched them shred into bits and turn into compost, which to her surprise, she found utterly fascinating and oh so satisfying. With bags of freshly made leaf mulch, she headed to her garden and spread it over her fast growing seedlings.
