Great Steaming Mulch!
The Great Steaming Mulchpile of 2008 has arrived! All hail the living Mulch!
The TreePeople came through for us, again. This time, with a full truckload of pear, California bay laurel, and redwood wood chips. I am constantly amazed at how quickly fermentation/rot/composting begins. Look how this pile of fresh chips is steaming! Even the girls took a turn getting up on it and digging their bare feet into the warm microbial feasting.
The smell of the bay tree filled the entire area between and around all the houses.
