I was doing some cooking and mama lizard was quicker than I expected, so when I went out the last time she was resting on her laurels, the mulch was spread back over the ground. But I have some interesting photos.
I made a batch of my taco/nacho/burrito mix to use this week, and I've cleaned out a lot of stuff in the fridge revealing an inordinate number of apples, so I think I'll make a cobbler.
The soil is perfect in the garden this weekend so I'll be finished beds for planting and I'll get the bedding plants once the soil is ready - it's too easy to let plants die or get too pot-bound if I buy them ahead of time. It's late, but with a long growing season, that's not really a problem. Last year's pests are a problem, they were here the year before also (a form of stink bug that sucks the tomatoes dry),so I will be spreading mulch before I plant anything and drench the beds with spinosad (an organic bug killer) to hopefully take out the soil/larval stage of those bugs. And I always try to not plant too close together, so I can monitor bug activity. Maybe this year I'll manage it.
