Meet mulch mountain

This is what we'll be doing this weekend...

Our neighbor asked: what are you mulching... the earth?

Yes, it would seem so.

Daily math lesson: 12 cubic yards = A LOT of freakin' mulch.

It's to cover the flower/plant beds. Everything looks better with mulch, don't you agree?

It is actually way more than we need (ya think?) but we wanted a thick layer, and didn't want to have to pick up 3-4 loads in the pick-up. This way, it's cheaper per yard and a dump truck delivers it... but 12 cubic yards is the minimum.

Naturally, a mountain of mulch has proven to be irresistible to small humanoids.


It is warm and earthy... what is not to love?

So last night we got busy (with the mulch, silly). We have pretty much drowned all of the beds in inches of mulch and we still have at least half of our mountain.

Anyone need some mulch?

Sounds like fun! If I didn't have a black gardening thumb that might even kill mulch, I'd totally help. And, you know, if I wasn't in Los Angeles and somewhat far away.

Details, details... ;)
