Fortunately for us there is a massive pine grove here in Pine Grove holler and we're friends with the folks who own the land and they let us come get whatever we want... We can fill 5 contractors bags in about a half an hour...

The bales are real expensive around here... Like $4.50 a bale and these bales are just half the size of a straw or hay bale... That's too much...

We have our entire veggie garden mulched with straw... 'Bout 6 inches deep... Works real well and unlike the pine needles, low in acid so it can be plowed under in the fall and not mess with the Ph...
