Preparing my garden beds to turn over from spring crops to eventual fall plantings. Each of the beds pictured are sixty square feet (a bit less because of paths cutting across). I chopped and dropped the plants that were growing in the area and then, to add to the bulk, I added weeds (hand weeded, mostly grasses) from our front yard flower beds, grass clippings (our neighbor often gives us his - gas mower, but no treatments) and straw (which we used as temporary paddock bedding while we were on vacation and couldn’t rotate their forage).
I'm reclaiming a neglected garden and wasn't sure what was still in this area. I chopped and dropped (and pulled some unwanted perennials) around a purple grape, black-eyed Susan, raspberries, hyssop, and St. John's wort. I also brought grass in from another area.
(Reminder to myself) God didn't say, "well said, well planned, and well thought out." He said, "well done."
Someone flagged this submission as an edge case BB. BBV price: 0 Note: Could you add paragraph or photos showing requirements are met: - Chop materials and mulch 50 square feet of desirable plants. - Chopped area likely needs to be 150 square feet
It's starting to get colder at night down here in the southern hemisphere so I thought it's a great time for some chop and drop. First I harvested a bucket of sun chokes from my 25sq foot raises bed and chop and dropped the sun chokes and pumpkin.
After that I ripped out another pumpkin and give my nitrogen fixers out the front a haircut to cover about 35sq feet.

I chopped weeds and used them to mulch a hugel at Wheaton Labs. The hugel in question didn't really have any weeds, so I gathered the grasses from nearby.
