Wood chip mulch is available from the city. There is a half cubic yard box in the rear of the van for transportation. A stockpile is obtained for later use in the vegetable garden. My main purpose is to retain moisture. When the vegetable plants get reasonably large the area is mulched. In the Fall the chips are rototilled into the soil and by Spring they are usually completely composted.
