Thanks Rebecca and Jay.

That makes sense. I have since been looking at a few sites where the permies are making briquets and "logs" out of the leaves using a binding agent like flour water. Once dried, they can be used for wood stoves and rocket stoves. Might be something that I try...

Have a great day!

cob
So I am working my rear off raking all these leaves that come into my yard every year. I get to thinking, "what use can these leaves be other than to compost in the back yard?" I have been thinking of building a RMH for some time. I have everything in the house infrastructure that I need, I just need to locate raw materials. I was wondering if anyone has any experience making cob from leaf litter. The leaves that I have will keep piling higher and higher in the compost, and I sure don't mind the nutrient rich soil that they produce, but I am also looking for material that is readily available to create the cob for the RMH. Leaves seem to be plentiful. What do you all think?
