Fall Garden

There’s no denying it, the growing season is over for this year. Days are short, night time temperatures are dipping close to freezing, and we’re seeing plenty of clouds and rain. Time to put the garden to bed: next year’s garlic and shallots are in the ground; cover crop (rye, vetch, clover) is sowed; and we’re spreading a nice cozy cover of leaf mulch on beds and cold-sensitive plants.

The garden looks empty now – but at the same time it is full of promise for another great growing season in 2010.
