Mulch Making Monday

Seedsaver Maggie-16Mulch Making-5

Mulch Making-4Mulch Making-11

We have been trying to find time to put all our winter prunings through the mulcher for weeks.

Today we finally managed in 2 hours to put this great pile of organic matter through the mulcher and spread it all over some of our garden beds as summer mulch.

I still have lots of dried grass cuttings which I shall use to put around small seedlings.

Lovely organically home grown and processed MULCH for our summer garden.

Lucky we put the mulch down today, tomorrow is going to be 35 degrees Celsius.

Adelaide has lots of rain in winter so dried grass cuttings provide ample mulch and summer prunings will be mulched and then composted.

Dry grass seems to be good goat food. But at least the poo is ggod for the garden.
