"Every quiet step is thunder to beetle life underfoot..." - Barbara Kingsolver

   Tuesday morning started off beautifully brisk after the refreshing rains. Upon arriving at the Edible Peace Patch we noticed that our once tall heap of mulch had now been spread across the growing garden landscape. Knowing that the mulch was essential to the expansion of our garden we decided to retrieve the "green monster" from Eckerd campus. After loading up the truck with several pitchforks we made our way to the recycling complex just down the road from Lakewood Elementary. Luckily the resources we were in need off were in excess! The persistent rains of the this past week had added a substantial weight to the mulch heap and it soon became obvious this job would not be a quick one. As the sun's rays began to grow stronger we tossed in the last loads of mulch into the bed.
    A short trip back to the school and we began to unload our steamy, warm mulch heap. Although unloading the mulch proved to be a much easier task it did not come without casualties...

By the time we finished unloading all the mulch it was time for the next group to start the day's work. We packed up our things and headed back to Eckerd campus to return the green monster. Until our next adventure in the Edible Peace Patch, farewell to all!
