I just got my husband, saint that he is, to distrubute the huge pile of wood chips the power company left in our upper parking area to our lower gardens. I'm loving the woodchips in the paths already--they hold moisture, and keep the weeds down. But I want to know, please, Chris Kott, what is a fungal slurry. My wood chips came with plenty of miceleum included and have offered plenty of fungal blooms already. I expect there will be more.
I've also used cardboard on paths this year, and when I've moved the cardboard to reorient paths, or plots, I am amazed by the life beneath the cardboard. I'm a big devotee of sheet mulch!
