Putting down mulch can be an arduous task.  However, here in the Hollow it is simplified slightly because of the ATV.  Filling the small trailer with the mulch and attaching it to the ATV, it's then easy to maneuver around the yard.  Then all that's left is to evenly spread it with a pitchfork.  I like to put mulch along the entire creek, around the trees and shrubs.  I do not put it in my perennial gardens as I prefer the plants to naturalize, crowding out the weeds which has always worked well here. 

It's summer and picture the ATV stopped, engine idling, with the little trailer filled with mulch.  Taking a hefty amount on the pitchfork, I heard a loud humming.  Walking back to the ATV, again I heard the loud humming.  I kept on thinking it was the engine.  It sounded as if something was vibrating, but I saw nothing against the engine as I climbed back on ready to move to my next spot.  Still, that humming.  This was a different sound.  A sound I'd never heard before...a sound that wasn't going away.

  4. i am waiting for The Rest of The Story... this reminds me of one of my fun photo shoots. a friend raises cows and wanted photos. her husband drove the tractor pulling a bale of hay behind him, my friend walked behind the bale with a pitch fork spreading as it fell off, about 10 cows walked behind eating and eating. i need to find that photo.

  5. WOW!, you sure got my attention, I'm little cautious, when I hear noises, kinda makes one worry about, yep!, I'm gonna say it,"SNAKES"!'s that time of year again, I'll stay tuned to find out what that mysterous noise is!!!!...

    i'd say a pack of ornery hornets invaded your ATV engine!

  7. Hmmmm, I love a mystery though.

  8. Well, you are going to have to show pictures of the mulch along the creek. Makes me wonder if we should do that here. I have a creek that runs along side the house. Gotta see your flower beds too! As for the humming noise, I have no clue!

    Can't wait to hear the rest of the story!
