This is the before shot...
We began by collecting all the branches that were no bigger than 2 inches around (what you see below is just the beginning), and put them into a pile. The larger branches were loaded into the cart hitched to bear (our ATV) to bring back to the cabin to cut into firewood.
I laid newspaper down first (this creates a thicker barrier to keep the weeds from growing but allows air through for the veggies), then dropped the mulch by buckets onto the paper, about 3 or 4 inches thick. We are doing this around the entire perimeter of the garden, and will also mulch (without newspaper) in between the planted rows.
We thought we would finish this project today, but it's taking much longer than we thought. We'll be back at it again tomorrow!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
