3 - Overwintering plants
I am planting pea seeds in one of my boxes....next spring when the snow melts there are little pea plants all over and we get a nice early harvest of veggies! (I am in zone 4). I also leave the onions in the ground and by May they are 3 feet high!
4 - Weeds
Getting rid of all the weed plants in the garden
5 - Records
Making sure my gardening journal is up todate with what we planted - how much we harvested etc so I know better what we need next year. I find if I do this in the fall - I have a much better record, rather than waiting till next spring to make sure it is up todate.
6 - Plowing
Half of our garden gets plowed and half is in boxes. I will cut the corn stalks and that half will get plowed this week.
7 - Flower Beds
All of the flower beds are cut back - I need to put all the plants into the compost bins.
8 - Compost bins
When everything is added - I need to add some coffee grounds, some dirt and some water and they are ready for winter too.
A little sad that the season is ending outdoors. I have loved this fall and being out everyday. This year I have a greenhouse that will significantly add time to gardening for me and our family. Next post will be about greenhouse progress.
Thanks for stopping by!
