This batch smells really good. Pine.
Yesterday my neighbor was hauling a load of tree leaves to be disposed of. I asked if I could load them into my pickup. Thank you! Those are now already spread on the garden bed for next year's corn / squash / sunflowers. They'll keep the weeds from growing, plus be mixed in a compost in situ.
Based on past experience, this batch of pine chips will take about 6 or 8 pickup loads. They should be enough to refresh the front garden borders, and most of the orchard. I want to be as water-wise as possible next year, and avoid the labor for weed management. This will help significantly.
