Hello, I'm usually on the chicken forum, my first time here! I have tons of fall leaves on the ground and no mower or mulcher to shred them. Can I bury whole leaves in a raised garden bed? I'm reading conflicting information about whether they will break down by spring OR kill plants when they form an impenetrable barrier. Bed is mostly used for tomatoes and beans. I could bury them around the perimeter where they wouldn't have plant contact if that would be better than in the middle where they would. Thanks in advance for any advice!
