Makin' Hay While the Sun Shines

This is really part two from my last post about mowing and then moving the clippings to the garden area for mulch. We'd been thinking of buying some bales of hay to lay down between rows, under tomato cages, etc., but now it looks like we have more than enough from our own property. I don't know if this is hay, or straw, or what, in a technical sense, but we sure did have a wagon load of it! DH did most of this hard work, and I helped near the end of the process, as my back muscles reminded me the next day. He rigged up this combination of a 2 x 4 and a tarp on the back of the mower, raked the cuttings onto the tarp, and then hauled them over to make this impressive pile!

Now let's hope we can get this applied to the garden before it becomes a mouse hotel. Don't EVEN get me started on mice...

Well, this is all then.
