I got a truck load of spoiled straw delivered the other day from Happy Trails Farm Sanctuary. www.happytrailsfarm.org. This was suppose to be project for this weekend. I use this straw on the garden. I put everywhere. I do not till my garden any more, I just add more and more "mulch" on top. If I see weeds poking through, I put more mulch on it. I have been doing this for years. But it takes quite a bit of mulch material to do it this way. I use grass clippings, spoiled straw, and leaves this time of year. But it rained all day yesterday and the garden is soaked right now.
