I'm surprised you you've got that many leaves down already that far south. Around here they are just begging to lose their leafs. I won't be done with fall clean up until the last week of Nov to first week of Dec. slkpk
Leaves are starting to turn and fall here too. I mulch mow over them first before sweeping. That way I get much more into the hopper. I hate making too many trips to the compost pile with light loads of fluff.
Nice looking machine! That is one tough looking tractor.
The leaves here are dropping too due to the dryness. I have a big ash tree in the back yard that is 80% bare already. The hickorys are turning along with the maples and the oaks are just starting to turn.
If we don't get some rain soon, I have a feeling that hunting season might be in trouble with the fire threat.
