The mulch monster

Bright and early Saturday morning, the fiancee and I were out and about picking up last minute essentials for our big mulching day! First stop was for coffee and breakfast! I had a yummy kaiser roll with ham, cheese and egg. Delish! The fiancee had a sausage and egg, he has a thing with cheese on sausage, as in he doesn't like it. I happen to love it, however I opted for ham since the calories are lower. Both were delightful!

We had to make a last stop at the fiancee's parents house to gather asparagus. They are out of town for a few days, so we got to load up on fresh asparagus from their backyard. (evidently it grows quite quickly!) If you've never had fresh asparagus straight from the ground - you don't know what you're missing!! It's SO much better than anything you can find in the store. Thankfully we have our own batch of the green stuff in our yard, but we only planted it a couple months ago and I hear it takes a year to come up. So, in the meantime, we can steal some from the in-laws!

After all of our running around, we were finally ready to mulch. We started at 1pm....and finished at 6pm! Can you believe it??? And we're not really finished, we still have some more beds to mulch, but we just couldn't do anymore last night! I think by mid-week, we'll be completely done. And then it's time for the garden!! I'm planting peas, sugar snap peas and lettuce next weekend. Hopefully everything comes up!
While I laid on the couch (so tired from mulching!) the fiancee got busy in the kitchen. He made cuban pork - pork loin stuffed with ham, swiss cheese, mustard and pickles! Just like a cuban sandwich! Grilled up with fresh asparagus! Twas great!
I fell asleep during "A Few Good Men" Sunday night....sleep was wonderful!
