Ms. SpoolTeacher has visions of an organic food haven, even though the Southwest challenges are great, she loves a good challenge.
For several years now, she has been corralling all of her fallen leaves. So by now she has a variety of stages of leaf mold occurring.

She is still learning how to do it right but there aren't very many ways to do it too awfully wrong.
We'll see. She'll be planting them soon and hopefully will remember to take progress shots...

Me, me, me. Such a demanding Little Red-Haired Girl. What little hair she has left.
