I finally got another load of mulch to finish the garden. Spreading it is not much fun at this time of year. The plants have grown and most of the mulch must be spread by hand. I have to be careful not pack the mulch against the stems to prevent burn. But the soil will benefit. It should help keep weeds down and hold moisture during the hot summer.

My next few days will be filled with moving mulch. The plants always stand out after a fresh layer of mulch and the garden looks neat and tidy. Bring on the Gatorade.
