We finally got all the leaves taken care of for this year. That’s not to say all the leaves are up from the yard.

No, actually the city trucks did their last yard waste pickup for the year on Thursday.

On Wednesday night, we did a quick dash to load as many leaves as possible into the big blue container, pack them in tight and wheeled it to the curb.

A few small piles remain. We’ll bag them and keep them around until spring when the city restarts its yard waste pickup.

In the meantime, free leaves for anyone who wants them.
