Nice pics. What are you using for mulch?

no mulch on that garden this season. it was supposed to be left with bean stalks from last fall, but Ma raked them off. it was topped with a half and half mix of sand and loamy topsoil and likely had some pea gravel scattered in it too.
it will soon get weeded and then have a cover crop of dry beans of various sorts stuck in between what is left of the tulips.

it varies by garden and what i have available. the perennial gardens mostly get weed barrier fabric under a thick layer of wood chips.
the veggie gardens may not get any mulch at all other than green manures, weeds and whatever paper scraps i can get out there.
some gardens have rocks or crushed limestone as a mulch.
then we also have shredded bark, bark pieces, shredded wood, shredded or unshredded leaves, newspapers, egg cartons, magazines, cardboard, cardstock, cover crops and the usual gang of weedy interlopers or some wandering annuals/biennials (pinks, poppies, hollyhocks, nigella...). in some locations i've tried using the hens and chicks as a living mulch since they seem fairly indestructable (if up high enough so that they don't sit in standing water). pieces of rotting wood/bark, mosses.
and then there are the rust garden, or the glass garden and the pea gravel patches and the spaces Ma uses to sort her beach stones for making stepping stones and ...
i'm trying to think of what i would consider the strangest mulch. broken pottery, pieces of glass, rusted metal are probably three of the strangest.
