Evening all,
First of all I owuld like to thank all of you for your kindness, love and support this week. YOu have helped me grapple with the death of my blessed Shadow... and I count my blessings to have all of you as my friends.

Today, my husband and I Had some mulch delivered for my garden....it was 16 cubic yards of shredded mulch. It was a very BIG TRUCK... It was dumped just inside my garden and then we strated in. Ubby got his trusty Kubota out and loaded hi bucket full of mulch up and dumped it in piles all over the garden. Then we raked it. I had to dig my perennials out from under all the mulch but thegarden looks so muh better and I Haven't even strated to plant anything this year yet. We got all this mulch to help keep the weeds down, and the moisture in. We are sooo tired! But feel good! I Have a few small spots left and I'll get that done tomorrow.

PHEW!!!! Hubby said he will be glad to go back to work !!

Good luck with all that mulch!

Now you just need to be able to keep the critters out!

As for keeping the critters

As for keeping the critters out I use Irish Spring soap in socks hung around the edges of my garden on stakes.I change the soap to Zest if the critters start showing up again.So far seems to work!
