So this nice man comes to my door and asks me if I could use some cypress mulch. Apparently, my brain only heard the word 'mulch' and nothing else.... This tree company was taking out a couple of trees on another street and needed to unload their 'mulch' to save travel time to get another truck as the homeowner had decided to take out additional trees..,
I truly had no idea how much one of those trucks holds! What I have is a mountain....motor home size...of wood chips and branches...
DD and I made an attempt to sift and bag some of it, but quickly gave up. Now, I'm in the process of hauling it to the backyard as fresh wood chips are not really what you want to put in your garden beds (consumes lots of nitrogen as the chips break down..). I mean, it will be mulch...in a couple years...lol.
I figure I might have most of it gone by Christmas...I hope.
