Adding wood chips to the sheet mulch

Adding wood chips onto the sheet mulchI took advantage of the last few hours of frozen ground yesterday to haul in a load of composted wood chips to add to the sheet mulch.  The wood chips have been sitting in our parking area for about three years now, I think, and as I shovelled them up I felt they were almost too good to lay down on a path.  Many of the chips had decomposed into rich brown dirt, and the nearby trees had begun to sneak their roots up to steal the bounty.

I suspect that may be our last trip in the golf cart for several days.  I'm thrilled by the forecast warm weather, but it's going to turn the driveway to goop before the ground starts to dry.  No driving for a while!
