MULCH CAN BE SEEDY SITUATION
June 10, 1999

As long as I have the flexibility to be a slave to the weather, this isn’t all bad. It certainly has saved on watering as I haven’t had to soak newly planted seeds to get them to germinate. The downside — and there always is one — is that the weeds have been getting a boost as well.
