I have been able to get a lot of wood chips from a very nice neighbour of ours. They have a deal with the tree clipping company to drop their tree mulch off at their house. So, I wanted to mulch our berry patch very deeply to keep weeds at bay.
You can't tell, but the plants at the bottom of the above picture are blueberries and rhubarb. There is a row of raspberries at the top.
Before I shoveled all the mulch out there, I laid down folded cardboard boxes and then topped those with about 4 inches of mulch. I left 4 holes in between each row of fruit to plant all our squash plants. All the fruit are new transplants,so I knew there would still be room in between them for the squash.
Here are some pictures from today;
|I grabbed this headboard from the dump the other day and am using it for a support for some of our blackberries.|
Thanks for stopping by.
