Mulching for Winter

Fall is here and its time to muck the fields!  All the plots received a good dose of our special mulch/fertilizing mixture this weekend, which helps to rejuvenate the soil and prepare it for next year’s planting. The organic material will slowly break down in the ground over time, adding to its texture. Mulching also protects the bare ground from wind erosion and guards against frost damage. Our Garlic lays under a blanket of mulch over the Winter, waiting to sprout next Spring. Rose-hips are starting to bloom now as well.
