Yesterday I met Russell at school, and we spread some wood chips on the native plant bed. He had gotten the chips from his friend who trims trees. I was so glad to get this free mulch. The planter bed is pretty big, and it would have taken a lot of money to get it covered otherwise. I was also really glad for his help.
Diane took our picture for the church newsletter:
We only did a thin layer. I will still be digging nutgrass out of the bed for many weeks to come. Perhaps many months. I can’t believe how it just keeps growing and growing. But it has to be exhausted eventually, right? Right? ………..right…… ?
