Covering the Gardens with Mulch and Compost

Winter is the best time to cover garden beds with a rich layer of organic mulch or compost.

Fortunately I am able to make both right here at my Bedford, New York farm. During the course of the year, my outdoor grounds crew amasses large amounts of organic debris - felled trees, branches, leaves, etc., but none of the material goes to waste. It is either repurposed quickly as milled lumber, or made into mulch and compost, that nutrient rich “black gold” that we use generously over all the gardens, tucking them snuggly away until spring.
