I am counting down the days too. Is that new mulch? When should you start to mulch?

Courtney, it was new mulch last year. I think we put it in late Spring/early Summer (around May, I think). Everything just comes up through it. I do have to watch, though, because some parts of it are pretty clumped together and hard. If you are planting new things, you can plant them down into mulch that you already have, making sure you get down into the soil, or plant your stuff and then put down new mulch over it.
