a random bushel of hay

I stopped at the local feed and lawn store on the way home from Costco today and randomly bought a bushel of hay. I have been wanting to lay down some mulch around the tomatoes and figured hay would be a cheap way to do it. Mulch helps by preventing weeds, helping the soil retain moisture, and by keeping the soil temp out of the extreme - not to mention it looks good too. So now I have some mulch around my tomatoes, 99% of a hay bushel left on my porch, and a car that now needs to be vacuumed. I think it's safe to say that I won't be needing to buy any more mulch for quite a while!
