MULCH

Mt. Mulch at Homegrown Mini-Golf - Kerhonkson, NY





it is chopped wood (often old shipping pallets) that holds moisture in and (theoretically) keeps weeds from growing. been hauling wheelbarrels of the stuff around Wunder Gurl's mini-golf in Upstate NY. it's Splinter City to handle without gloves, but it does smell good. cedar, i think.


it can come in lots of colors...






















and it even comes in yummysmelling flavors...


















...and the Black Thumb Curse seems to be fading - seeds i planted actually sprouted and my babyplants now dot the golf course. strawberries i planted at DG are also looking good. and WG gave me a calla lily plant for my b-day that i have managed not to kill.








i like this gardening thing.



NP: roomie is playing Jerry Lee Lewis Live at the Star Club in Hamburg, Germany...when rock 'n' roll was dangerous.

PEEVE DE JOUR: Chase Bank has just become attrocious. everything they do is wrong, inconvenient and/or extremely inconvenient. i've been with them since the '80's (my accounts were with Chemical Bank, which Chase bought), and am seriously considering jumping ship. am also preparing a blog post on the death of retail banking...bitching to be continued.

JOIE DE JOUR: beautiful summer-y day. riding my bike and leaving the car parked.

"(theoretically) keeps weeds from growing"

Well, Tania's the gardener, but I can confirm that it does.

i say theoretically 'cause some of these tuffbuggers punch right thru the landscape cloth AND the mulch.

in the next life, i'm coming back as a weed.

The mulch in the big pile is cedar, the by-product of a local industry. I get it straight from the saw mill, and it's pretty gnarly stuff. The mulch you buy at the hardware/garden store tends to be more domesticated, and even sometimes dyed.

BTW, that pile is much smaller today than when when the photo was taken yesterday. My dogs are dog-tired!
