First off, most important, Happy Pi Day! Jeff is currently in the kitchen making some Pi Day creation, so if there's a picture later, I'll add it.
We found a website to sign up for free wood chips from tree removal companies, called Chip Drop
. Last time we got free chips we called around to different companies, but this time we're going to try and see if this website works. I'm not sure how active this site is, but if it works we'll let you guys know. If we don't get anything in the next few weeks, I'll probably go back to calling around.
We especially want mulch to cover the front planting strip to kill the lawn in preparation for filling it with flowers.

This year we've had record-breaking amounts of rain, so we still haven't been able to make headway on the chicken coop/garden shed project
. We have most of the materials staged in our garage, but we'd like about a week of dry weather to put the structure up.

The crocus bulbs I planted last fall are starting to come up. I'm really looking forward to some sunny weather.
