aka, the mulch that ate my weekend. I decided to get some of the free (well, delivery charge--still a deal!) leaf mulch Arlington county offers to use as I extend my flower beds. Let's just say that my math skills are not so hot. We were shoveling for three days, and begging neighbors (passerby even) to take some. This photograph is completely deceiving, as I now realize I should have stepped back. The pile was almost as tell as me! I did not even count the number of wheelbarrows, but I think when you see the finished beds you will appreciate how much mulch I was dealing with.
