Today we finished spreading 54 yards of mulch on our property. In case you're a "city slicker", hardwood bark mulch is sold by the cubic yard, which is the amount that would fit into a cube 3 feet high by 3 feet wide by 3 feet deep. So 54 yards is a good bit of mulch to spread, but some years we've put down as much as 180 yards. That's two tractor-trailer loads! So this year was actually kinda easy! I wish I had taken a picture of the pile for you.
TIP: If you've bought a large quantity of goods or services from a particular local vendor for many years, he/she may be willing to negotiate a discount with you.
The highlight of our day was a visit from this little salamander:
He appears to have an injured left eye. That's why it looks red in the picture.
Also, the snake count is now at 4 for the season.
