Getting ready for next spring

One of the many lessons I have learned this growing season is that while have nice rows of grass between the growing beds is pretty , its a nightmare to maintain . So this fall we are putting down wood chips between the growing beds . This will keep down the weeds that spread into the beds , and save me mowing time . After a few years we can shift the growing beds because the wood chips will compost int to great soil . Although the wood chips are a little raw ( fresh from a downed tree ) they will serve the purpose , and they were free thanks to Wayne at Arbor supply .
