I just wanted to get this off my chest. I hate the red mulch I'm seeing everywhere lately. Hate it. It looks ugly, fake and garish. I assume the only reason people are using it instead of the more usual brown shredded hardwood mulch is because it's new and different. Oh, lookie! There's something different: RED mulch! I must buy it and I must use it. Just because. It's new. And different. And red. And maybe more expensive. (Although I don't know that.)
There, I feel better.
Today, when I went to water some seedlings I have on the deck I saw what I thought were two rocks sitting in the cells. Now how did they get there, I wondered. So I started to pick one up and it was then I realized it wasn't a rock. It felt cold and a little slimey. Tree frogs! A big one and a baby one were taking naps in my seedlings. That's what I get for not wearing my glasses.
