In autumn, on trash day, the pavement in my neighbourhood looks very much like this. In most of these garbage bags are… leaves!
Leaves are not trash! They’re the most amazing carbon-rich material for your compost. Collect, shred (use your lawnmower or a shredder) and stash (in bags or on a compost heap) to have a ready supply of ‘brown’ material to use in your YOLO Compost Tumbler throughout the year.
