Every one likes to see that beautiful dark earth when they till up their garden in the spring, but then they spend the rest of their summer pulling weeds, watering and fertilizing the bare earth around their plants. Then when autumn comes, people fill up their garbage bins with all of the fallen leaves, and leftover stems and dead plants.
Well, I'm here to tell you there is a better way. Mulch. Mulch makes everything better.
My three favorite benefits of mulch:
1.) Moisture Retention
2.) Feeds Your Plants
3.) Weed Control
Free Mulch Workshop:
Here at Haven Homestead, we love mulch. In fact we love it so much that we are going to host a free mulch gardening workshop on November 8th, 2014. It will be from 10 a.m. until noon, and lunch will be provided. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP before hand so that I can make sure we have enough food! Come dressed to work!
And one more thing about mulch:
I recently found this really great infographic and article from Fix.com. If you click on the graphic below you'll be taken to their website. They are awesome! Lots of good things to read up on, and enjoy, not to mention this mulch graphic pretty much says it all!
