Living in The Texas Hill Country with oak trees, leaves and tassels, are you looking at relocating to the Grand State of Texas? Take time to read post, which is a re-blog of my friend Carl Winters in New Braunfels, Texas, original mighty fine blog post. I would really prefer that you pay a visit to Carl's actual blog post to leave a comment on his original post.
Carl is the one that is truly deserving of your comments! I sure would like to see Carl get 200 or more comments left on his blog post, plus I would like to ask that you take the time to click the little ole Suggest Button at the top of Carl's blog post.
Down below you can read the comment that I left for Carl!
Howdy and evening to you Carl and Ceil
Carl and Ceil, I also get to rake up leaves in the Spring Time, mainly from them falling in the Fall Time, we also have Oak Trees and other hard wood Trees, plus a lot of soft wood Trees. Over in Vermont they have a lot more soft wood Trees like Pines than they do hard wood Trees.
I always make a game out of raking the leaves up, so that way it does not feel so much like work. We also have a compost pile that I put our leaves in, and besides the leaves and uncooked veggies I also add some Cow manure into the compost.
Y'all and your mighty fine Localism blog post of Canyon Lake and the Texas Hill Country sure has gave folks some mighty good info.
If you are a new or first time home owner at Canyon Lake or even in The Texas Hill Country you will soon learn about oak trees, leaves and tassels.
Here is a good thing to think about doing:
Compost Yard Waste
In our case it is oak tree leaves that fall in the spring here at Canyon Lake Texas and in the Texas Hill Country. Yes, it is work but think about it as a fun job where you can invite friends and family over to help you clean up.
If you are like Ceil and me, we have raked and raked and raked; seems like an endless task. Hauled leaves and grass clippings to the compost pile and still have piles of leaves to be moved.
Add your left over uncooked veggies, tomatoes, potato skins, egg shells, celery (this will help speed up the process). Remember to keep the compost pile wet and turn over every couple weeks. By next spring you will have some nice compost.
Now the tassels are beginning to fall as the new leaves pop out. Here comes the runny nose and red itchy eyes . Oak pollen allergy is definitely in the air here in The Texas Hill Country. Let me also mention the yellow that covers everything. Hopefully the next rain will wash this yellow oak pollen dust away.
Yellow tassels, messy but will in time be washed away:
Good News: All the leaves, oak pollen tassels should have fallen by the end of April.
In the meantime, continue to rake, trim and spruce up your yard and garden areas.
Spring is a good time to inspect your flower beds, and garden areas. Clean, trim and get ready for spring planting. While you are doing this be sure to look for termites or wood ants that seem to come out in early spring. Best to do a thorough property inspection early spring.
Another of Carl's Thought Provokers for Spring clean-up. Next time we will discuss the outside of the house.
Stay tuned. (If you are building or buying or even selling consider a home inspection). You want to keep your property well maintained. If in doubt, call Carl Winters with Complete Inspection Service at 830 - 899-2441 - TREC License #3630, Advanced Home and Property Inspection Service).Another localism blog April 5, 2011 for The Texas Hill Country.
