Mulching with a friend

Mulching

The last weed and mulch episode in the garden is never at the top of my priority list, but I know from experience that every hour's work now saves two hours during the next growing season.  So we took advantage of a handy visitor and some barefoot weather to finish slipping straw around the greens in the mule garden. 

All that's left to mulch is about half the perennials, then we'll be going into winter more ship-shape than ever before.  I generally run out of warm weather before I run out of weeds, but not this year!

The Weekend Homesteader walks you through starting a no-till vegetable garden that will provide nourishing food without breaking the bank.
