Dear GYA, Years ago, I made a vow to never rake leaves again. I'm a firm believer that nature always takes care of itself, even when it comes to my yard. And now, after last night's mighty tempest, it would appear that all my leaves are conveniently placed on my neighbor Todd's lawn. Anything happening this weekend now that the wind took care of my leaf situation? Judd Flarsh, The Avenues
Judd, I also believe nature is the solution to all of our problems; that's why I don't pick up my dog's poop. Eventually, nature will turn the nutrient-rich poop into healthy, robust topsoil. My neighbors love the free soil. Here's what's happening this weekend, starting with Friday's events:
