On my last free weekend before wedding season began we got down to it in the garden – determined to whip it into shape and show the weeds who was boss! A friend had recommended mulching as a great way to cut down on the amount of weeding we needed to do and we agreed. Early on Saturday morning we borrowed our friend’s trailer (thanks, Tom!!) and bought 3 cubic feet of pine bark mulch at a local nursery. I was on weeding duty while Jeff spread the mulch behind me. It was physical work but the before/after was pretty dramatic so it was so satisfying. We also bought a few annuals and extra perennials to fill in some barer spots.
It was the PERFECT day to be outside – not too hot but brilliantly and beautifully sunny!
