Newpaper and moldy straw keep help with moisture and weeds.Last year, we used a mulching system in our garden inspired by this book, a book that truly changed my way of looking at food, gardening, and saying "yes" to raising our own chickens. I am still mulching this vast garden of ours, just taking a break from the heat during lunch to share some views from our garden and coop.

Where do your garden inspirations come from?
