Mulch



Gee have we got our work cut out. Along with all the other jobs that need doing around the place we now have a huge pile of mulch (30m3) to spread around all the hedges, trees and on the wind mounds. It will be great once finished though as the mulch will keep a lot of the weeds under control, and also make the plantings stand out more and the landscape will generally look a bit tidier. In honour of the occasion we also purchased a pitch fork, just what every farm should have I reckon. Makes the job of hauling it into barrows and out again a whole lot easier.

A pitchfork you will find will be the best and most used tool you will ever have. Post peelings are wonderful for both looks and as mulch. Love your blog!
