How to mulch and why might be some questions you are asking as the temperatures rise, and prospects of weeds loom in the horizon. Urban homesteader Daniel gives some great tips. - Editor
Well the first 90's of the year hit today, May 24th. This is about one month earlier than the weatherman relates. So I had to run out and buy some mulch/cover for my beds.
I could see the my plants starting to wither from the heat. So I paid $5.00 for a bale of straw from a nursery. I almost choked on the price - I think my face did some gymnastics. But I threw it in the trunk of my car and drove home.
