I am surprised by your using fresh grass clippings for mulch around the veggies, guess the heat from them does not bother the plants. Mulch sure makes a garden look so much better and keeps the weeds down too. I just mulched between the peppers and the spinach and onions with dried grass clippings and oak leaves. Hoping that rain will pack them down a bit.

As long as I don't put them on too thick they don't heat up much, but most of the clippings this time were dry because the grass was mowed a couple of days before without a bagger and we just went over it to pick them up. It worked pretty good. I do like mulching for looks plus I cannot keep up with the weeding by myself and watering so it really helps.

We don't have a lot of leaves available but this fall we will search them out.
