Gardens are a lot of work! First the area is prepared, for us that meant rotating the chickens through the area and then tilling it and then tapping it. Next the seeds need to be planted, watered, babied. Then the seedlings get transplanted out into the garden. Phew..... I'm so hungry after all of that work I'm going to be anxiously awaiting the food that comes from it. But wait we aren't done yet... we have to keep watering those baby plants. Make sure that weeds don't take them over.
The good news is that with a little effort up front the watering and weeding can be dealt with fairly simply. Mulching to the rescue! This week we take you on our mulching adventure showing you 5 reasons that its a good idea to mulch your garden, no matter what size, with a little added farm humor. Thanks for joining us down on the farm and we hope you have a wonderful week! We would love to know what you are growing and about your experience with mulching, let us know in the comment section below! Cheers!
