Spring Yard Work

We have some trees that tend to keep their leaves well into the winter, so I generally clean up the leaves in the spring as soon as the lawn dries. That’s what I did this week. There were so many I took them to the land fill. (More like a “land hill” than a “land fill” — they put them on the top of a ridge, so no doubt the neighboring corn fields get the leaves.)

I had to weigh in and weigh out. The scale bill said I had 460 lbs of leaves from my yard.

That’s dry leaves, btw. I had waited long enough so they were no longer soggy. FYI, 460 lbs of dry leaves barely fit into a pickup bed. In fact, they don’t fit into a pickup bed. Six of the bags were stuffed in the extended cab.
