What is a good moisture retaining mulch for vegetable gardens?
Denver County Colorado
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.
