Get your mulch on!

6th grade got out in the sunshine today and got into some good mulching. This technique of collecting leaves and placing them around plants, gives plants insulation and protection from the cold. It also protects the soil from weather damage. To top it all off, the leaves will eventually turn to compost and feed the plants. We really value any outside garden time at this point of the year before the rains force us inside. Today was gorgeous!
