Today we cleaned out the pepper and tomato beds to get them ready for garlic. The organic garlic bulbs have come in, we are just waiting for the first light frost so we can get them planted. We cut down the corn stalks and are donating them to the OSO to use for their fall festival coming up soon. We also deadheaded the perennials in the butterfly garden and pulled out the leggy annuals. Within the next couple of weeks we will amend the beds with leaves from the school grounds. They will compost nicely over the winter and make the soil nutrient rich for spring plantings. The greens are ready for harvest and will be given to the cafeteria next week for use in salads.
|This lettuce is very sweet. We enjoyed tasting it fresh this morning.|
