Gone Mulching

The field crew has been in a non-stop mulch mode, ever since the completion of the garlic harvest. Mulch is a layer of material applied to the soil surface to conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Depending of the type, it can also build soil fertility. Woodchips, leaves, straw, compost, and even plastic can all serve as mulch. We mulch primarily with leaves, for several reasons. For one, they’re free! In the fall, we stockpile truckloads from our neighbor, who owns a landscaping company. Second, leaves break down within a year, which works perfectly for us—otherwise, they would interfere with next year’s plantings. Third, they’re relatively lightweight, so they’re easy to apply by hand. L
