Sucking Up Some Leaves

I look crazy ridiculous when I go outside to suck up leaves. I'm an allergy queen, so sucking up leaves has got to be one of the worst things for me. On goes the respirator, and any goggles I can find laying around. Right after it's shower time. I have to get those fine leaf particles out of my hair.

Our neighbor's big tree hangs right over our driveway. Outside I go to suck up the leaves after a windy day, or just when a bunch have fallen.

Then I take finely chopped leaves, put them in a bucket of water and use it as compost. The trees, bushes, and plants love it. My pocket book loves it because it's free compost.

I don't think you look crazy ridiculous. But you would definitely be prepared for the zombie Apocalypse haha.

I haven't tried composting leaves yet.

I love fall, but I really hate doing the leaves. Thankfully hubby takes care of most of it, but it sure is back breaking work!

You wear the respirator well, though. I have allergies, too, but I don't go outside any more than I have to and I certainly don't do yard work lol.

What are you using to suck them up with? I have huge quantities to rake in the next few days but if there's an easier way (besides the box on the riding mower) , I'm all ears.
