I worked really hard yesterday to finish my mulching. There’s one more area in our yard that needs mulch, but it can wait for now.
The garden is now mulched with leaves and straw. The straw is leftover from when our yard was planted last summer after our driveway construction. I’m glad that we raked it up and saved it once the grass came up because I don’t think I would have had enough saved leaves to finish mulching the garden without it.
I noticed that I have one green cherry tomato and a few Gypsy pepper that are almost ready to pick. I am so ready for fresh from the garden veggies to enjoy.
Before I tackled the garden, I finished spreading “pretty mulch” on this bed. The bed doesn’t look that large from the picture, but it sure is big in real life! If you are wondering what the mess is behind the tree, it’s my hidden supply of greenstone, bricks, and pavers leftover from our driveway. (This can’t be seen from the street or from most any angle in my yard.)
It was hard work doing all of this mulching but it is the work that I enjoy doing. I’ll take a day in my yard over a day in my classroom any day! Summer break is a good thing! Next up – weeding my flowerbeds.
