Seattle Tree Preservation is again the bearer of all things good. Their crew happily brought an entire dump truck full of the sweet smelling mixture culled from someone else's yard in our neighborhood.
We've been waiting almost two months for this special delivery. It seems many people are choosing to keep their cuttings - a good thing for sure but it means longer waits for us mulch hounds.
This is the second pile this year. We're sharing with neighbors so it can go fast. What we have managed to get down has been tremendous help in preventing or weakening weeds and grass.
I got the call Thursday that they'd be delivering it. So I spent three hours cleaning up existing beds to prepare for another layer. I thank my now 1-year-old, who decided it was a good day to take his longest nap yet. Did I mention how much I love that little guy.
After he woke and had lunch, we went to Swansons Nursery to spend the "Swan Dollars" they hand out each year. They're equal to cash so if you have $20 worth and purchases totalling $40, your out of pocket is cut in half with the fake money. It's the nursery's reward for us garden enthusiasts.
