   Re Lon's letter, below:  Sorry Lon but 95% of the leaves that arrive here
have been picked up with lawn mowers.  While they are not totally shredded,
they are quite shredded.

Were you using whole leaves or did you shred them?   Grinding the
leaves would eliminate the sheltering effect of whole leaves and
greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the slug problem.  Also, the leaves
would break down to humus much faster.
