Beyond Beleaf

No time to write a “real blog” what with the unbeleafable pileup to deal with in my yard. And I’m preoccupied with the US elections (see my Occam’s Corner blog tomorrow!).

there goes the weekend

Hours of work, half way there:

halfway there

And finally done.

all done

Anyone care to guess how many leaves we collected in 29 full bags?

About Steve Caplan

I am a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska where I mentor a group of students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers working on endocytic protein trafficking. My first lablit novel, "Matter Over Mind," is about a biomedical researcher seeking tenure and struggling to overcome the consequences of growing up with a parent suffering from bipolar disorder. Lablit novel #2, "Welcome Home, Sir," published by Anaphora Literary Press, deals with a hypochondriac principal investigator whose service in the army and post-traumatic stress disorder actually prepare him well for academic, but not personal success. Novel #3, "A Degree of Betrayal," is an academic murder mystery. "Saving One" is my most recent novel set at the National Institutes of Health. Now IN PRESS: Today's Curiosity is Tomorrow's Cure: The Case for Basic Biomedical Research (CRC PRESS, 2021). All views expressed are my own, of course--after all, I hate advertising.

    Steve-good work. I was doing exactly the same this weekend, though perhaps on a marginally smaller scale.

    I hope you are going to use the leaves to make leaf-mould for the garden. it’s one of the best mulches you can get.

  3. I love raking leaves, but we get only about 50 leaves total. Next year I’ll fly over and give you a hand.

  4. If you need more leaves, I can recommend you grow Boston Ivy all over your house.

    Do you want mine?
