    From the Ground Up: Mulching: It’s not just for springtime

    When I was out walking Tuesday morning, I stopped to chat with one of my neighbors, who was applying mulch to a newly-weeded and watered perennial bed. I was impressed by her efforts (I’m behind in my garden chores, as is usual just lately). I was also impressed that she had purchased the load of mulch from our township yard for half the springtime price — a late-season benefit.

She wore a coat over them that she claims met the no-more-than-4-inch-above-the-knee rule. The photo shown on Fox 29 news shows a different story. The jacket is above her butt.
