Mulch Appreciated

While we’ve been preoccupied with planting, harvesting, aphids, market, and composting (worm and otherwise,) a problem has been slowly creeping up on us, fed by the heat and the dripline (which is sometimes left on too long) spreading it’s pernicious tendrils up and down the rows.

Weeds.

Weeds. It seems as though we just weeded, and yet there are weeds. A quick search for organic weed control methods turned up some interesting results (apparently boiling water works really well for grass in driveway cracks) but almost all mentioned one method in particular- mulch, mulch, mulch, mulch.

So the garden is in need of organic mulch materials. Grass clippings, straw, cardboard, lawn detritus, (I am even considering shredded paper) as long as it is not sprayed with toxic chemicals (Herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers). If you bag your clippings and don’t spray your lawn, let us know, and we’ll be very grateful to come pick them up and give them a good home.
