Free dirt, mulch, and bean tepees!

It’s garden time in Febuary! πŸŒ»πŸŒ±πŸ’

I have heard gardeners raving about mulch as weed control… So…

I googled free mulch – and I found that Heman park in U City offers mulch – free for the taking!

Β So I gave the kids a snow shovel and had them take turns loading it in the car!


When we got home… The real fun began!

We were successful in building our bean tepees! 😊

We will have to make several more trips to the park to get more mulch and dirt… But I don’t mind!

Thankfully everyone is in the garden spirit!!

    Loading the car? I picture a car with the trunk full of mulch. No bags no nothing. We have a big chipper here on the farm but it cuts the stuff up to fine for mulch. It does work well for walkways.

    • LOL – perhaps I should have said loaded the van! I tried to think how I could shift the kids around in the seats so I could put more mulch in… but you know – seat belts and safety first!

    • Perhaps I should also add that the plastic is actually a tarp and so we were literally shoveling the mulch straight into the van!
