We just moved to a new house on a quarter of an acre. A week and a half later, my husband deployed for three months. Well, we live in WA where it is ALWAYS wet. It hasn't rained all day, but my leaves are still soaked and it's supposed to rain pretty much every day from here until.. Spring?
I tried to go out and do the leaves myself, but after an hour, I had accomplished very, very little, was exhausted from moving the soaked leaves and very frustrated. So my question is.. can I just leave them alone until Spring and deal with them when it is dry and my hubby is home?

The leaves will make good fertilizer but only for the trees from which it dropped from. The leaves will smoother and kill your lawn grass especially if the leaves are big. Do you have a lawn mower with a mulching feature? If you do then you can wait for another day that it is not raining and mow the grass this way. It will shred the leaves just enough to where it will fertilize the lawn grass without killing it.
