Cover crops and hog fuel, 2018 garden seedlings progress, backyard panorama

Hi Everyone, it’s been a busy few weeks since my last blog post, so lets get to it and talk about what we’ve been working on…

This weekend I spread 8 yards of hogfuel mulch around our urban homestead. Paula was working on our Easter dinner plans, so I was told to vacate the house. When I get told by Mrs Mann to “go outside” I take full advantage of my dirt-time. 🙂
We use hodfuel as mulch on our backyard trails for the dogs and people to walk on. The advantage of this “hard wood” mulch is that it takes years to breakdown; the last time we mulched was 4 years ago when we really started converting our backyard into an urban homestead food production system. You’ll see what this mulch looks like in the photos at the end of this blog post.
