Organic mulch is preferred for vegetable gardens and as the mulch decomposes it can add nutrients to the soil. The most recommended mulch is organic straw spread 2-3 inches thick. Do your best to be certain that the straw you obtain is organic and free of herbicides so that chemical residue does not affect your new crop.
