Use your autumn leaves

Put autumn leaves to use; you can easily make a container for leafmould with some wire mesh and a couple of stout poles (thin canes are too weak and let the heap tilt sideways); keep adding leaves as they compress down to fill the cage, and make sure the heap stays moist, but it will take at least a year, sometimes two, for deciduous leaves to form crumbly leafmould.
