THE POWER OF MULCH

Posted by admin in Uncategorized | Tagged , , , , | 1 Comment

The benefit of mulching is obvious in this photo.  Two rows of raised beds created at the same time, the one on the right utilized deep leaf mulch, the one on the left used no mulch.  The left gardens are full of crab grass that’s grown in over the winter and spring.  The right side garden has hardly any grass and weeds plus the moisture in the soil is much higher.  The mulch will slowly break down, feeding and attracting worms who in turn make vermicast to feed the plants.  We can’t say enough good things about mulching, what’s not to like?

    mulch is what was used to call the worms for the turtle mound so it is nice and fluffy though it is a little over run by plant material this year but after a rain all that material will be easy to pull out for planting, if I can get enough people to help out, or it will not be planted this year. A big thank you to our volunteers that did show on saturday for we did get alot done with the Telus group that helped so much with the re-vamp!
