Mulching

Last year Enn (from Estonia) helped with construction, this time he is covering the garden paths with woodchips and mulching the plant beds. We use mainly chopped grasses and weeds from our own land. Mulch provides an excellent protection from the burning sun, the earth stays moist and soft under its cover. It also prevents weed growth and eventually will compost and provide nutrients for the vegetables.
