cutting barrels, drilling holes, spreading mulch, repeat. It' coming along. I think it's going to work well. I know some people don't agree with the use of plastic or just don't like the look, personally I am a little more about function than form. The uniformity of it is form enough for me to be happy if it allows me to keep the weed problem under control this year. Here it is so far.
While I was digging in the mulch pile I found this worm. He was so big he slithered right out of the wheel barrow and started almost flying across the ground. I actually had to pin it with a stick before I touched it because it was moving so quick I couldn't tell if it was a worm or a baby snake! (no shortage of snakes around here.) when layed out flat he was actually bigger than the dollar bill without even being stretched at all. Wish the pic did more justice, he was enormous!
