A Few More Weeks To Go.....

October  24, 2013

We have continued to consistently have weekly workdays and the garden 
keeps on giving. We'll even be doing more harvesting and composting  this Sunday, October 27.

This past month we have gradually been putting the beds "to bed" by  cleaning them up and planting clover seeds for the winter.  Last week tomatoes and eggplants were fully harvested, the plants removed, and 
tomato cages stacked by the side of the fence.  The beds were weeded, 
composted, tilled and raked -- in preparation for next season's 
planting.  The compost was turned as the plants from the eggplants and 
tomatoes were broken up and added to the compost.

Harvested:  tomatoes, eggplants, chard, arugula, spinach, beets, 
herbs, marigolds, jalapenos
