Hello. Benjamin From Brother’s Campfire here!
If you are into ear pain, Enjoy this offbeat beauty! Marty Faces Adversity
The links are to poems and videos of Marty’s prior prowess. You can only find my YouTube here at the Campfire.
Anyway, here is how I rake with my lawn mower. I attach the bag and set the body low to the ground, slowly mowing.
I let Marty do the work and he picks up the leaves like a pro. The leaves go in the compost pile.
I compost nearly everything organic and these leaves are no exception. The mix of browns and greens is a little off, but when I mix the spring grass clippings in, it will compost quickly.
I wrote Giving Them Compost earlier this year to show how effective composting is. There is little left from the July batch in the above mentioned post and it started out as a pickup truck sized heap.
Sometimes, a pile of refuse is all you have to show for yourself.
In the right hands, life can spring up from a heap of what was to be bagged up and thrown out.
Well, that is Marty for you. He has been a helpful little mower and an instrument of purpose, something I aspire to be. I look up to you Marty!
