Picked up a load of green coffee bags yesterday morning. This morning, I unloaded them. I didn't even know Emily was checking them out until I saw this picture tonight! She does like the bag covered pathways in the garden. Guess she thinks this means she'll soon have some clean bags to lay on.
Some went directly to the pumpkin patch. Others went into the barn and to friends. My plan was to lay them over that grass path between the sunflower bed (right) and the pumpkin patch (left) as it becomes hard to keep mown when the pumpkins are gowning. Instead, I covered the already rototilled pumpkin patch. There was some grass and weeds popping up and the bags should help discourage them, keep the soil moist and make the worms happy. Tonight, I planted the 4 pumpkin sprouts from the seeds planted May 13th. Now I need to plant the Snackjack pumpkins.
My, we did a lot of work today. Time to take a nap. Apparently, she approves of the stepping stones also. There are 2 at the ends of each path to make for easy trimming. Emily (& Petunia's Gardener) have been walking on the garden bed endcaps and these stepping stones to get around the garden beds without walking through the grass.
