49. I "stole" bags of dry leaves!
They were out on the streets awaiting pickup. I planned my pre-dawn raids. I filled up the Rodeo to capacity several times over.

I hauled these leaves into the back yard. I "buried" them. I mixed left over extra leaves with fresh cut lawn clippings. The buried leaves in a matter of weeks disintegrated. The ones with a white mold helped fend off soil problems. Then both the soil area and the grass leave area became compost. This happened in a very high clay area. Now the garden is organic and produces far more food than it should have. By putting out garlic plants you can get rid of most garden pests naturally.

Sometimes you gotta give nature a speedy hand to achieve your objective.

Too bad those bailout banks are tossing out their unwanted money, huh!
