good times in the garden today. got out the mower and cyclone rake and sucked up a bunch of clippings to use as mulch around the plants. I still haven't found much on mulch in period, but i can't keep up with the weeding otherwise. And i've hauled water from the river in buckets, but now that there's more plants i can't keep up with that either. So the mulch and the hose take the place of a gardening staff.
and it was hot so finished it off with a dunk in the river.
