Yes I have a wimpy girly electric, battery even...the Black and Decker group of battery things. Its not bad as a light weed whacker, and the same battery fits the dustbuster
Also my trash can is not as big
i collect alot of leaves in the fall..they are great soil ammendment,great for my compost,
and best of all.. FREE !!! :)
i have a neighbor boy mow mine down..
last yr i think i had near 300 big bags of leaves.. i used all of them
this last season..
i have some spaded into the vegy garden..some will be used as insulation on
"winter hardy" bananas,mulch on some areas,and the rest left piled up for composting
good luck to ya !!!
same with my gardens honeybee.. my garden is full of earthworms too.. now if i just found
time to go fishin.. lol
i had sucess with sort of sheet composting last yr in couple spots in flower gardens..
in holes where big tropical plants (bananas) come out..i put grass clippings/shredded leaves..then
cover with soil.. its not completely composted by time i put next yrs plants in..but the plants seem to
appreciate the addition of humus..
plus wow there are some nice big nitecrawlers.. sigh..fishin..
Thanks for this thread...I'd been wanting to make use of my leaves rather than just put them all out in bags for the city to pick up. I picked up a cheap leaf vac at Home Depot and I'm going to do some shredding!
