Gardener: Autumn leaves make great mulch

With a strong hint of fall in the air and first signs of color on the leaves, my mind turns toward the bounty that will soon follow. The autumn leaves that fall from the trees are the makings of rich garden mulch and compost that I will gladly collect. Even my neighbors are well-trained by now. They know they are not to throw their precious leaves away or leave them for the Monday morning trash pickup, or worse, burn them.
