Have you spread your fertilizer and mulch yet? If not, look for cocoa mulch. I’ve been trying to find it around these parts for years, and finally I did. Cocoa mulch is made from the shells of the cocoa bean. It’s gorgeous and GREAT mulch. I borrowed a friend’s truck and brought home 20 bags – about a full truckbed full. It’s very un-Greenwich to cart and spread your own mulch, but I love to do it – it’s like taking a bath in chocolate.
Get real close to your screen:
Even closer -
Now scratch and sniff your screen. It’s like a thousand chocolate bars.
Spread it really thick (like 3 or 4 inches) and you’ll have fewer weeds and it works to keep the moisture in the ground.
Plus, it looks pretty and finishes your garden.
Disclaimer: If you have a dog, you probably want to find another type of mulch. The jury is still out, but a few dogs have eaten this and taken ill or worse.
