Garden Mulch for the Leeks
I gathered the mulch from the woods to place around the leek plants and over the entire bed, including the trench walls. Below is a close up picture of the mulched bed.
To spread the mulch, I protected a leek plant with one hand and dropped mulched around it with the other. The mulch is around 2 inches deep.
I used an old mop bucket to carry the mulch from the woods. It took several trips. My husband's disassembled metal shop is currently blocking the gate to the woods. I could walk around it, but there was no room to maneuver a wheel barrow.
After that I took a walk in the woods to see the wild flowers and spring leaves. Below is a view of my compost piles.
A week or two ago, I worked in the woods, clearing fallen branches and the fallen trees that I could move. While there, I saw blue jay feathers scattered about. I found them again today and took a picture.
While I am off my topic, I have to tell you that this morning, I heard a mourning dove hit a sour note.
