Mulch creating

February 26, 2015

An interesting set of images here. I now chip the multitude of olive wands with a simple domestic chipper we get during the pruning season. It makes for perfect animal bedding but also a fantastic much-needed mulch for below any new fruit tree plantings, as well as the Cypress windbreaks during establishment. The rock mulch you see in the last picture is a way I came to terms with the winds and the fire. I rake beneath the trees collecting all the stones, mow, and then burn in rock heaps that can ember away for days. The resulting black/grey stone is phosphor-rich and goes back under the trees to induce flowering and fruiting. A sure way to reduce risky fires in the wind.
