Mulching with leaves
I'm thinking about using shredded leaves for mulch in my veggie garden next year. I have an electric blower/vac that mulches up the leaves, which will work great. With that said, say I mulch up a bunch this fall, and wish to apply it next spring. What should I do with my shredded leaves over winter? Should I dump them in a pile, and allow them to start composting, or do I bag them up to keep them from composting? If I dump them in a pile, should I add nitrogen to aid the composting, or NOT add nitrogen, to slow down composting? Thanks!
