Been mulching a little patch of garden. The pleasant surprise of the day: how light a bag of mulch is. Compared to, say, a bag of growing soil. Growing soil should be sold bundled with ibuprofen.

Gardening still takes a lot out of a person, physically. But on the other hand, it’s really hard to garden and worry at the same time.

That pic is not our garden – I did not yet get any decent pictures of it. But I was very interested to see how much better a garden looks before and after mulching.

For our little patch, we used 12 bags today, which covered about half. We’ll go back for 12 more bags next Saturday.
