Suppress Garden Weeds with Cow-Manure Mulch

Use cow manure to create a mat that suppresses weeds, fertilizes, and conserves water in your garden.

A friend brought me some “end of the season, no guarantees” bare-root fruit trees in late spring. They were in sad shape, but I patty-matted them and they all survived with minimal watering.
