Just like start-ups have to make major changes with each new stage of their development, so do gardens…
While the summer garden is my absolute favorite stage, it had become very clear that the garden was an overgrown disaster that needed to be modified.
So, I made pickles of the last remaining fruit (mainly just green tomatoes and cucumbers).
And did a solid day of clearing.
The next weekend, I finished clearing, turned the beds, amended 4 beds for winter plants and prepped the garlic (per the Garlicmeister’s instructions).
And finally, winter seedlings are in the ground (along with the garlic bulbs), in time to soak up the rains from the latest rainstorm.
Only 2 months until it’s time to start the pepper seeds…
