Do any of you use some of your own crop residues as mulch? --pea straw, garlic stalk, grasses, cover crops. I don't mean planting into winter-killed growth; I'm wondering about something you'd harvest, dry(?), and lay on a different bed. If so, how do you best harvest it for the purpose? And any other tricks of the trade.
Also, Does anyone have strong feelings for or against using spoiled hay (intended for livestock feed) as garden mulch? I guess seeds could be a BIG problem. Are the mold spores detrimental to a garden or its gardeners?
