Mulch It, Mulch It Good

Dsc06052After a few nights spending what felt like hours picking at each teeny weed, I decided to mulch over the Burrow garden.  I really love the way everything looks when you first put mulch down--all matching and cared for.

And everything is growing well (including the beans here pictured)...except the cucumbers--they haven't come up at all.  I'm trying to be patient.  I've decided I'm going to give it until Memorial Day, and if nothing's popped up by then I'll buy plants instead. 

I've pledged the same thing for my little butterfly garden at home, but I don't know if that's really going to last.  I have some patchy little seedlings coming up, but I want bigger, faster, more, NOW!

I know, I know--I'm horribly impatient.
