A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE
I am thankful for the tree trimming people who left us a big bunch of wood chips for mulch. Even if they did grind up Billy's favorite Mulberry tree limbs he had set aside for his BBQ. OOPs... I guess what we had there was "a failure to communicate" as Paul Newman said. Did you know that silkworms only eat fresh Mulberry leaves? I love my Mulberry Tree because it helps to feed a lot of birds. But people do wonder what all those purple puddles are in our yard! Birds have poor toilet etiquette. I'd show you a pic of my mulch but after you've seen one pile of mulch, you've pretty mulch seen them all. LOL..It does smell so nice though. All a green, woody, nature, fruity, sort of smell. That fruity part is probably Billy's Mulberry limbs. ~00~
I don't have much available right now for mulch other than that, except pine straw in the woods. That is so hard to gather though, with all the limbs and junk in it since the winds whipped through. Thank goodness I still have some of my old hay left though. I am going to throw that over my square foot garden boxes as soon as everything is harvested.
I have to talk Billy into leaving some Okra to dry on the vine. He keeps picking it for his gumbo making. I thought I might make some of those little little angels I found over on this blog. She makes the cutest angels from Okra. You can buy dried Okra even if you can't grow it yourself, at craft stores. Check out her blog, you will love it. flaurella's blog It is not just about crafts.
I have three cats,,two boys and a girl and a little, eleven year old mixed dog named Solo. That's my little
girl, Meshe in the pic..She is much prettier than I am, so I chose her for my pic. I also have a very nice DH named Billy. He's a keeper.
