I just love that word - mulch.
What do you all use as a mulch in your garden? I don't usually do anything special, so the Peat Moss in my mix forms a hard crust when you water or it rains. So, what's a good alternative?
Do you use straw, bark, grass clippings, leaves? What do you like to use? I'd like to use something that's not too expensive and relatively easy to find or acquire.
