    This year I'm gonna do the LIME test to how it goes.. what's $10 in lime gonna hurt?
    I've got lots of Oaks and they make great compost. You can add the lime but you really don't need it unless you already have acid soil. Fresh oak leaves are acid but after they compost, the compost is pretty much neutral. The acidity goes away as they compost.

    Turns out hurricane Sandy did my work for me and blew the leaves off the lawn. I have one area to leaf blow them away from the fence and into the compost pile.
