Old Mulch for My Veggie Garden

Anonymous added on September 19, 2011 | Answered

I'm clearing out a back corner in my yard - it's been used as a dump site for yard waste for years before I owned the house. There's a giant pine in that corner and weeds grow like crazy there. It's 6 inches higher ground than the yard, and nice and soggy after a good rain. Now to my question. Can I use this in my garden to level the ground at the back half and not cause problems next year for my veggies?

I don't see why not, but you may want to allow it to dry out some, turning (aerating) it with a garden fork or shovel.
