Soybean Straw Garden Mulch
Tom Gogerty likes using soybean straw to mulch his garden because itís relatively seed and weed-free compared with oats straw or grass.
  The problem is that the soybean residue is too coarse and bulky to handle easily. So he makes a pile of residue and chops it with his lawn mower, collecting it in the mowerís bag.
  The chopped straw is much easier to spread around small plants and covers the ground more tightly. Itís also more absorbent to hold moisture.
