that's right, ladies and gentlemen.
wood chips mixed with compost, aka mulch, is the thrilling topic of the week here at the dew drop inn garden.
some of my plants were droopy and my close friend/next door neighbor/garden pal told me twice that i needed to mulch everything. he said that because we live on a hot hill, i need to use mulch to moderate the soil temperature.
so i got my mulch on and covered those beauties in a fragrant wood concoction.
it was a very satisfying process indeed. i found it relaxing and peaceful to get up close to my plants again and cover their soil.
in other news, i used a few tiny clippings of herbs when cooking tonight:
parsley for edamame hummus...
cilantro for fish taco baja cream...
on the garden agenda for this week:
- use a nitrogen rich fertilizer
- replant a few lovelies who are already too big for their pots
- take notes in my cute new garden journal from the wonderful ms. heidi pumpkin pie at bury me in leaves
- snap some photos!
