Putting the garden to bed

How nice it is of the neighbours’ trees to give me mulch for the winter. I raked the fallen leaves off the lawn (which doesn’t need additional fertilization) and then heaped them deep on all the growing beds. I figure that mulching and fertilizing with fallen leaves is how nature does it, so it must be okay.

I’d already spread last year’s completed compost on the beds, but I’m not going to waste free mulch. And the fallen leaves will also provide warm homes for over-wintering insects.
