I always enjoy quiet slow winter weekends where I can leisurely clean the leaves from azaleas and put down a nice mulch of pine straw. The pine straw holds the leaves in place to decompose, adds to the acidic PH that azaleas need, and I look forwarded to raking it up and spreading it. I use the same pitch fork that I used on my dads farm in my youth. It just feels right when I lift a fork full of pine straw--brings back memories of stacking hay, feeding cattle, and cleaning out barns. I use a pickup instead of the hay rack to haul it home.
