Today I spent most of the day at my community plot. After doing a few hours of path mowing and debris removal, I brought several wheel barrows full of wood chips to my plot. These are the remains of many Belmont trees that were blown over in the big wind storm 2 weeks ago. I spread a 2-3 inch layer on the paths between my raised beds.
Its perfect timing to get some mulch down as the summer is heating up and the garden needs help retaining its moisture. I’d like to buy some salt marsh hay tomorrow to mulch in the beds around the plants.
