This weekend I've also been out collecting bags of leaves to make leafmould (to improve soil structure). The allotment soil is very sandy and drains a bit too well, so any organic matter I can add is always welcome. As the weather was incredibly windy there weren't that many people around so I didn't get too many odd looks this time! I collect them up from areas nearby where the leaves all get blown into big piles, filling up old compost bags and transport them using my old shopping trolley frame - it must be a funny sight to see me pulling that along! But it means I can move quite heavy materials without the need for a car.
Anyhoo, thanks for reading and see you next time - I'm dashing out to hopefully see a talk by Tom Cox who writes the My Sad Cat stuff, it's a small venue and unticketed, so is first come first served, eep!
