Raking

So far, we have filled 13 garbage cans full of leaves. I'm guessing we'll be able to fill that many again as the rest of the leaves lose their grip on our big Norway Maple tree. It was MUCH easier when we just raked the leaves into the flowerbeds as mulch, but "tar spot" means we get to do a lot of raking now.

 

Supposedly tar spot makes the leaves fall earlier than usual, but this tree is still the last tree on the block to lose its leaves.

 

Our tree was a lot better looking this year after three years of diligent raking, but since many of our neighbours have maple trees and don't rake, it's a bit of an exercise in futility.
