No WRONG "Mulching; I have always thought mulching to be to, stir up the dirt around them with a prong thing (forget the name right now) and mix in manure or fertilizer? I am going to see if they have a gardener dictionary on here. All I have at the moment, is steer manure, but I understand 'horse manure' and goat or sheep? is better."
mulching; it is adding manure to the soil.
Mulching is just to put a layer of mulch on TOP of the soil and leave it there. Usually you want the layer to be at least 2-3" deep. Mulch can be anything organic: the bark chips they sell as mulch, fall leaves, shredded paper, compost from your compost pile, pine straw, grass clippings, etc.
The point of having the layer of stuff on top of the soil, is that it protects the soil from losing moisture, shades the soil and the roots in it from too much heat, and then the mulch layer gradually breaks down to feed the soil.
Incidentally the "prong thing" has a very technical name--it is called a fork.
