Mulching Around the Farm

The weather here in the Northeast has been unusually mild for this time of year. This week, temperatures are hovering in the 40s and 50s, and some of the spring-blooming bulbs are already beginning to poke through the soil.

Around my Bedford, New York farm, the outdoor grounds crew is adding a little more protection around the growing bulbs to keep them insulated against cold snaps and drying winds - after all, we still have several more weeks of winter. They’re adding a layer of mulch to various tree pits and along my daffodil border. If you’re seeing some early growth around your garden, don’t worry too much - hardy and adaptable spring-blooming bulbs are quite resilient.

Enjoy these photos and tips.
