The Weekly Rhubarb takes on WOOD CHIP MULCH!
So last year, we talked about my daylily bed and I sang the merits of mulch and gave you a few places to get cheap or free mulch.
Now, I know you must be confused by the weekly rhubarb thing, so let me explain. Back when, a LONG time ago (notice the "blogspot" in the rhubarb button?!?), I decided I wanted to focus on some controversial subjects. The term "rhubarb" refers to a fight in a baseball game and it sounded like the right kind of innocent "riling up" that I like. Of course, I guess I am less controversial than I thought because I did like two posts and then went back to DIY Gardening and Craft Ideas pretty much immediately.
