^ LOL. I really don't get it.
I don't get raking either. I love this time of year when my garden gets covered in leaves. It acts as a perfect mulch through the winter and most leaves decompose throughout the winter. Most years, by the time the snow melts I already have green growth coming up from the soil which seems to get richer and more fertile each year. When I first bought my home I would get all the leaves off my garden and in the spring the ground was frozen solid with no spring flowers or growth in sight. I just kind of learned by accident over the years.
Leaves decompose, people. Go for a walk in the woods sometime in the summer and tell me how many leaves you see on the ground. None. If leaves were some sort of nuisance that needed to be cleaned out, our forests would be 30 feet deep in leaves. Nobody is raking out there.
