Mulch or Bonfire?

Here's some of the prunings we have from our work on our fruit trees.  I'd love to see it mulched or used for a hugelkulture bed.  I'm not quite ready to do either of them though.  Perhaps we should just have a bonfire?

Drum fire and beer!!!!!

Hello Jaime - I am a high school friend of Jasmine's! In answer to your question of mulch or bonfire, we have found that unless we mulch prunings very soon after they have been taken off the plants they will not mulch well through our mulcher machine - too dry. Therefore if we have not mulched in time, we have a fire once or twice a year with what has not been used, but I do rescue sticks prior to that when I need markers in the garden.
Keep up the great work. Cheers, Judi
