    I put leaves in my chicken pens and let them scratch and break them down along with pine shavings. Then I compost it with the chicken litter.

    Solid information, Joe. Your garden is coming along nicely.

    Great advice. We mulch our garden beds but I can say that historically I don’t see this done by the average home gardener. That’s a shame because it is a game changer when it comes to retaining moisture and improving soil, especially in containers and raised beds.
