Wondering what to do with all those leaves? Check out these great tips from our friends 4 the Soil!🌱 Soil Health Tip Tuesday: Ways to Save the Gold (and Red and Brown Leaves!) Chop ‘em up or collect ‘em all, we can use leaves as a valuable resource. 🍁🍂Feeding the soil with leaves can help improve it so that it retains more water and nutrients, which can help decrease the need for buying additives in the future. Using a lawn mower blade extension, we can chop the leaves up to more easily decompose. The fine particles become nutritious “earthworm food,” as described by Jeff Ishee, long-time market gardener, host of the podcast 4 The Soil: A Conversation, and On the Farm Radio. Jay Ford of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Virginia Soil Health Coalition Partner encouraged leaf collectors to store the piles of leaves in an area of the yard to use for the compost bin, soil amendments, or an insulating mulch for perennial beds.
