As the Beatles sang: "Happy Birthday to you!"

Happy birthday, just a bit late.

Leaves make a great gift. My job takes me into many neighborhoods around town. I'm able to liberate a pickup load of bagged leaves most days this time is year. Along with the weekly load of cardboard from work i have been able to kill mulch almost 1000 sq ft for next years food forest. This is after 4 ft diameter mulch around 14 existing fruit trees and 10 berry plants. We still have at least another month of leaf fall to come. A shame I can't use company truck to gather on weekends. LOL

I love you blog,keep writing and I will keep learning.

What a thoughtful mama! And happy birthday. I think I recall your mom collecting some bags of biomass from around town for you guys in the past too. Very nice!

Thanks to everyone for your birthday wishes! It wasn't actually my birthday though --- just a pre-birthday bash in preparation for my actual birthday Thursday. But I'll take all of your happy thoughts and bank them for later in the week. :-)

jen --- Bags of leaves are totally the best birthday present ever. :-)
