In my final gardening act of the year, I spent all morning yesterday raking out the back yard. I had done a little prep two weeks ago when I cleaned out the driveway and back staircase area and started a pile in the back yard, but I don’t think I’ve ever done all my bagging in one day. It went on forever.
I had a batch of smaller bags I’d accidentally bought last year that I wanted to get through, so I used those first. They essentially held half what the bigger bags do, and didn’t fit the form I use, so I was fiddling with them constantly. Things went sooooo much faster once I switched to the bigger bags. Note to self: be very careful with bag size from now on. There will be no more small bags.
I ended up with the equivalent of 21 1/2 big bags. And remember, there are no trees actually in my back yard. Sigh.
