That’s what we raked up from the yard this afternoon. That’s not a typo, and it’s not a big yard. Indeed, I believe it constitutes a small to average yard in America. And much of it was raked a couple months ago.
Twenty (20) 39-gallon trash bags filled to bursting. That’s approximately 780 gallons of leaves, which is at least 700 too many, I think.
Don’t get me wrong. Charleston is beautiful. The huge live oaks overhanging the yard are beautiful. But I just cannot get my head around this bizarre year-round leaf fall business.
Leaves fall in the Fall. It’s definitional!
