  • Wood chips and soil fertility

    I am in need of chips. Wood chips, that is. I grew up being warned about using fresh wood products as mulch or soil amendments because, in theory, as the wood broke down it would tie up valuable nitrogen, stealing it away from the plants.
    Recent conclusions based on old and new field research- and practical experience- suggests otherwise. I have found that wood chips make an excellent soil conditioner and weed suppressant (almost more critical this year).

    Written by a Catholic priest in 1968, I knew the song from my childhood. I have a vivid memory of my little brother singing it -- while beating the tar out of my other brother.
    I’m sure neither of my brothers appreciated the irony.
