Mulch in the Forecast

I managed to get a load of free mulch on Tuesday and hope to get 2 or 3 more tomorrow.

I also did a bit of weeding this morning before work.  I was able to weed around what I am fairly certain is a korean melon plant. The darn snails are getting at the fruits but most of the vine is now climbing up a tree limb.  I've been picking the snails off every time I'm out inspecting things.

Tomorrow we're going to Wigert's Bonsai in North Fort Myers.  Hubby is back on a bonsai kick.  He went to Wigert's on Wednesday and was amazed.  He wants me to go tomorrow to see how amazing the place is and to help choose a bonsai tree.

Once all the weeding and mulching is done, I plan on buying some bagged compost from OrganicLee.  Not sure how good this stuff is but thought it would be worth a try. It's either that or black kow.  I can't make compost fast enough and I need A LOT!

There's still some bushwacking that needs to be done in the new garden area.  A Dwarf Firebush, False Poinciana and Necklace Pod bush all need to be removed.

Lots to do.  Praying the weather will stay coolish.
