Shred autumn leaves

For any composting method, smaller pieces of material will mix better and breakdown faster. With the autumnal abundance of dry leaves at the moment, resist the temptation to just toss a bucketful into your YOLO Compost Tumbler. The leaves will probably clump (as in any compost). Allow the leaves to dry and crush them as you add them to your compost. If you, like me, do not have a leaf shredder, you can drive your lawnmower over a pile of leaves to cut them up.
