salt marsh hay
I found some mulching hay today. Two bales just barely fit in my trunk. Salt marsh hay is supposed to be good as it has less weed seeds than hay. It looks nice, protects plant roots and retains moistiure in the soil during the hot summer. Two bales will last a while for me, so I'll cover the extra with a tarp and save it.
I'll wait til our weather dries up until I put it on my plants. That certainly won't be tomorrow as the rain storm of the year predicted to arrive soon. I hope my garden doesn't get washed away....
