Two Cubic Yards!
Two cubic yards of anything is a LOT of stuff. The "stuff" today was dumped in the end of my driveway by a dump truck, and it is called "Sweet Peet" and it is not spelled "peat" because it is not. Sweet Peet is a mulch made here on Long Island, apparently, and is a mixture of wood chips and horse manure, mainly. So I spent the afternoon filling my wheelbarrow a whole bunch of times and dumping the stuff in each of the gardens, where Kathy spread it around. The gardens look really terrific with this mulch surrounding the plants. When I was done, I took a look at this plant from directly above and saw this really nice design. The plant is cilantro, and I photographed it in the herb garden where it lives.
