I really scored this weekend. While driving to give blood on Saturday, I noticed a grounds crew was raking up pine straw all along the street I was traveling on. I pulled over and asked one of the workers what they did with it once they'd bagged it up and he said they throw it away. I asked if I could come back and take some for my garden and he said absolutely. So I got four huge bags of pine straw to mulch my garden for free. I wish I'd been able to get more, but it wouldn't fit in my car. I'll have to keep my eyes open for the next time the crews are out!
