|Watermelon from last year.|
We finally found a local source of wheat straw in 50-pound bales. It seems that most farmers are converting to baling equipment that produces half-ton bales. These aren't very practical for our purposes of mulching the gardens. Chris and I are going to bring some of the smaller bales to the gardens today so we'll be able to continue feeding our "micro-livestock" (worms and soil-organisms). Volunteer-times for the next few weeks will include lots of mulching in the paths.
