Unfortunately, I discovered that there must be some poison ivy mixed in with the stuff. Now the routine is: work on moving wood chips while wearing washable cotton work gloves, strip down immediately upon entering the house and wash all clothing and gloves in hot water, take super soapy shower, wash phone & earbuds with wet wipe, wash garden clogs outside. It's a pain, but I haven't noticed any new spots of poison for almost a week.
I finally have the last of the planting done, although it will soon be time to pull out the peas and replant for a Fall crop.

L's garden beds are doing especially well, probably because they get weeded, watered and mulched regularly, unlike the rest of the garden.

This afternoon, we had a get together with a few families of our friends. The host outdid himself with delicious homemade rolls, cinnamon rolls and grilled Cornish hens. Now I am digesting and being lazy. It feels fabulous!
