Le Ripe now finds itself
Rich in Mulch.
As mentioned in a post earlier this year,
mulching is not a common practice in our parts. Only a change in regulations about burning off prunings etc effectively forced us to re-think our habits. For years I had harboured a desire to create our own mulch but was frustrated by local unwillingness to experiment.

Our garden will be grateful over the years.
