Mulch Madness

Our newly established garden beds on the farm necessitated a massive load of mulch, as weeds were popping up left and right and we were in a race against time to defeat them.  My husband & I layered newspapers down thick before piling on the mulch, and hopefully the weeds will be smothered and the battles of summer will be less tiresome, allowing me to simply enjoy the pleasures and beauty of favored plants.  It will surely take a few years before my shrubs and perennials have filled out and covered ground, but in the meantime, my new best friend is...mulch.
