Or is it a toss up? I generally go for simpler like shred and throw in the garden, but I could do a compost pile if there’s a clear benefit. Reply David The Good November 2, 2020 - 12:27 pm Probably just dropping it on the ground leaves you more material. Reply Wendy November 2, 2020 - 12:48 pm Thanks. Our land is really, really low on organic material so it’s been a challenge building it up (it seems the case with all farmed land). Now that we have a tractor, cover crops are more in play next year but might as well still use the leaves too. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
