For those of you who use bagged mulch in your garden (weed suppression, moisture retention, appearance, breakdown into humus), Lowe's has their spring sale going on until April 17.  $2 a bag.

I used to buy a whole pallet (like 63 bags) at a time when I had my old house with 25 fruit trees.  It would be used up by August.

Wood chips are color added.  Will they be okay to use on edible fruit trees?

I never had any issues.  I don't think the coloring contains anything harmful, and it certainly breaks down--oxidizes and is broken down by sunlight.  My trees thrived; the fruit was excellent.  They revised the closing date of the sale to APRIL 13, TOMORROW.  I've already spread most of it (out of 25 bags), and I still have one section left to do.  (I did have to pick out some debris, such as chunks of rubber and plastic and some shredded plastic, so it's not 100% clean.  It smells pretty good, though, like decaying wood should.)
