Wow, that's a lot of organic material

It being a very springlike day, I asked my One True Love if he would be so kind as to brave that big, bright, shiny thing in the sky long enough to take the long tape and get me a measurement on the dimensions of the back garden.  The one that I need to mulch.  The one that I reduced by at least a quarter last year.

It is currently 12' by 21'.  Which is to say, 252 square feet.  Which is to say, that's a lot of bleedin' mulch!

I think I'm going to investigate if one of our local garden centers can deliver me a load that I can wheelbarrow around the house to the garden.  Because buying 84 cubic feet of mulch in 2 cubic foot bags is just silly.

Which reminds me that I need to send soil samples to UConn for the lawn project.  Bob says it's all going to die from the shade, but I'm determined to try.
