That's a good point! I always feel so bad when I see people doing the "full fall cleanup" leaving nothing for the predators and prey to hang out in over the winter. Then again, I usually take all of the brush and leaves from the curbside paper bags so their loss is my gain. SoOOOOOoooo much mulch. Happy garden.
