Free soil amendment

Autumn Leaves

The weather today is perfect for raking leaves.
Shredding them allows me to store more bags in the garage.
Some are set aside for protecting the roses and clematis.
I won't be using white cones this year because of the turkeys.
Garden blankets, and jute worked best last winter.
I do have to wrap the shrubs with flexible fencing material first to support the cover.
The blankets go on the shrubs only when the weather stays below zero.
Since my garden is surrounded by a forest, I need to be more creative.
