HOT Leaves & Winter Plants

Our son's Boy Scout troop did a service project last week and the scout master dropped off the leaves by our garden on saturday.  Today I went to put some on the garden beds for mulch and I discovered that they were HOT and already composting.  I was amazed!  They were at least 80 degrees only a few inches into the pile.  Composting can happen fast and your garden will always benefit from the extra organic matter and nutrients.

We planted winter wheat out of our storage on Sept. 3rd.  I have never planted it before, but boy has it grown.  Plus in this bed is an assortment of brassics family that we are starting to nibble and will have the opportunity to eat in the early spring.
