The Sweet Smell of... Mulch
Ten cubic yards of dark brown mulch were delivered on Monday. Two-thirds of it has been deposited in the street-side and driveway beds. No garden ever looks better than when it has been newly mulched. Here's a photo gallery, taken this morning.
I retired from the corporate world in 2005. My 'second act' is as a gardening lecturer and a writer of mysteries (many with horticultural themes). My eleventh book, 'A Whiff of Revenge'', is due out this month.
My books are available at Amazon.com in print, audio, and e-book formats as well as through Barnes and Noble's website and independent booksellers. You can read excerpts of those books as well as my other work at www.TheHardingtonPress.com.
I lecture around New England with talks that include 'Gardening Is Murder' and 'Strong Independent Women'. My website has more details.
My wife, Betty, is a Lifetime Master Gardener, horticulturalist, and noted gardening lecturer (see her work at www.BettyonGardening.com).
Demanding a title of my own, I have given myself one: the Principal Undergardener.
