Mulch Mulch Mulch City!

For the past 3 days we have been driving to the tree scrap dump place and getting all kinds of mulch for the gardens. Yesterday, we hauled pine mulch for the walk ways and I learned a lot about the process of starting a garden bed. To get rid of pesky grass without digging up the entire yard cardboard boxes were placed down and the cover it up with the mulch and manure. 
Today my left lympnodes is a bit swollen and tender. Hopefully it clears up as the day progress. I also was able to ride Lena the confident pure Icelandic horse. It was a lot of fun because Lena loves to go fast and stay ahead of the group as the leader. 

This morning I learned about making granola from scratch and hopefully later on today I can forage a bit around the property. I saw some fern sprouts and creek marigolds during my various walks that I wish to take back with me. Tomorrow morning I will be leaving back to GR. A day earlier than I originally planned so I can work on a Mother’s Day present for Jennifer. I’ve been telling Meghan that I want a mandalin for my birthday. As I turn 27 on Mother’s Day I feel a new anxiety over the fact that my 20s are coming to an end! Ahhhhhhhh!!!
