“Great American Rake-off — November 14”

November 16, 2017

Our great crew of volunteers turned out for the “Great American Rake-off”. We raked and bagged the leaves in the Demonstration Garden. Some of those bags will be used as a “cold frame” which will over winter our potted plants. We will place bags around the outside and over the top of grouped pots, and they will be ready for our “Dug and Donated” section of the Annual Plant Sale.

We will leave open some the bags of leaves and keep the leaves moist so that in a couple of years we will have leaf mold. The long time frame is due to the presence of cottonwood and oak leaves which have a lot of lignin and take longer to break down. The rest of the bags of leaves will be recycled into mulch. Viva the leaf – and our wonderful volunteers!

Join us for a wonderful class by Leslie Holzmann, learning the tips and tricks for making the beauty of your garden and nature come alive in your photographs.

As a Colorado Master Gardener from 2001 through 2011, Leslie provided photo resources for the program’s displays, articles, and presentations. You can now find her photos and articles on her gardening and nature blog and on her website, Mountain-Plover.com.
