Before I begin the post, I want to apologize for being a day late. I have had to work extremely long hours this week, so I have not had my usual free time in the evenings.
This post is part of the Green Motivation Monday series. The purpose of these weekly posts is to offer motivation to take a small baby step in the green and eco-friendly direction. Of course, I will be taking the step right along with you. I will let you know how I did and I hope you let me know what you were able to accomplish.
Motivation: Compost the dried leaves in your yard.
Whether or not you currently have a compost pile or compost bin, you can still compost those leaves into beneficial soil that can be added to your garden or outdoor plants. Find an area in the back of your yard or behind a shed and start piling up leaves.
My husband and I bought plastic garden fence and several posts, which we used to create a few compost piles. The fence and posts help the pile look neater since it's contained (although we've had so many grass clippings and leaves that the two-part system is overflowing).
