All summer long our garden soil kept incubating under the 6 inches of mulch we bought from Singh Farms last spring. So the then 6 inches of chunky desert wood mulch has turned into 5 inches of rich chocolate brown soil. Yummy!
This year, Zander has given over the reigns to me. It pains him to release control to a whimsy, impatient, lazy sort of a person. But I think he will be happy with the results, considering that the beauty of the garden would be null if it wasn't for the hard work he put into rehabilitating the dirt and installing a customized drip system.
