More mulch

 truck load of mulch close up

Dropped off the rental chipper bright and early today in Kingsport which happens to be down the road from the Mulch store.

We bought 2 cubic yards of double ground, slightly aged mulch for 48 bucks.

Anna got a bit weak in the knees from her first handful and sniff not unlike the reaction you see when a wine expert gets his or her hands on a glass of 1943 Chateau Picard.

I must confess....I made up that vintage and have only once had a bottle of wine that cost more than a haircut.

I am not sure wine is the right drug to compare to anyway..

What would you suggest? You find me a drug that matches up to the appeal of mulch and I might stop being a teetotaler. :-)

I seem to remember that one year all my mom wanted for her birthday was mulch...and boy, did she get excited when she got it!
