I woke up 1am to hail! The next day I found all my begonias that I had painstakingly rooted by hand with (luckily tiny little) holes in their leaves. I lost a few tomato plants but I planted 50 plants for a reason.¬†Out of the 50 tomato plants I planted, I’ve still got more than half.

That's a LOT of mulch. I might have gone a wee bit overboard.

On the bright side my husband got me cedar mulch. A lot of cedar mulch. 14 cubic yards to be precise. So when its not cold and rainy I have been able to cover my flower, herb, and vegetable beds in about 3 inches of mulch.

Because I have seeds still coming up I have to lightly mulch with only about a half a inch so that the tiny little seedlings will still come up through the layer of cedar mulch. My goal this year is to have the best garden I have ever had, and it’s quickly turning out that way. I’m also really working on doing my first true fall and winter garden.
