its lots more expensive here. But I need some. I'm convinced one can never have too much: mulch compost manure

I have been mulching heavely for the past 18 months. I am surprised at how moist the soil stays during the summer and how warm the soil is during the winter.

I expand on my garden every year and will have to buy more bales to get me through the winter and into the spring.
