A Dozen Bags Of Leaves

     That's what's sitting out at the curb, or they were last time I looked.  Tam set most of them out; I grabbed the four from the back yard early this morning and added them.

     It's supposed to rain and turn sharply colder tonight, so we may be out of the leaf-raking business for awhile.  Forty big 33-gallonish paper bags of leaves so far.

I set eight bags out yesterday, but they were all from the front yard. (In fairness, I don't rake the bulk of our leaves, I just suck 'em up with the mower.) If I'd bagged the back, it would have been another 30+, maybe 40+ bags, and I didn't have time for that, so I disconnected the bagger and just chopped 'em up. As it turned out, the garbage truck came along to pick up lawn waste just about the same time I was coming around the house to put the mower away, so that worked out just fine.

Of course, after last night, I need to go back there and do it again -- but it won't be as bad this time. It's kind of amazing how many leaves are still on the trees, though.

So true, so true!

If we didn't rake and bag leaves, the yard would yet a couple inches taller per year. Also. it'd rile the neighbors.
