I bragged to my neighbor that my mulch pile would be gone by Monday. It was my 2nd mistake. My 1st mistake was ordering 7 yards of mulch last month. What was I thinking?
I have laid it everywhere I can think of:
the garden that wraps around the entire house,
the garden bordering my neighbor to the left,
the garden bordering the my neighbor to the right,
the sunflower bed behind our firewood pile,
the veggie garden,
the two trees and two saplings in front of our house,
and the garden behind Henry’s tree.
(After listing them all, I’m starting to think … perhaps … we have too many garden spots).
Even my neighbor has taken a few wheelbarrows of mulch to use in his garden.
And still I have a pile of mulch sitting in my driveway.
I’m beginning to hate the sight of it. Do you think anybody would notice if I set it on fire?
Speaking of my veggie garden, my strawberries are growing!
I have come to the conclusion already that I will not be making strawberry jam from any crop I receive out of the plants. They are too tasty. I can’t seem to stop myself from eating them as soon as they have ripened.
