Closing down the garden.
Well, yesterday Kenny convinced me to head outside and make use of the longest period without rain we've had in weeks (about 12 hours).
I took the opportunity to clean up the garden. Dismantle the stakes, bring in the lines, throw the dead and dying plants into the yard waste bin, and then dig up the bounty beneath our soil.
I'll just briefly annotate each of the last remaining three beds.
Both sides of the bed are covered in rocks. We'll be eating stone soup all winter!
There were also a few potatoes I lined up along the near side of this bed...
If anyone has further suggestions for how I can use up my stones, I'd love to hear them... Bread? Muffins? Casseroles? Maybe I'll bag some up and give them out to neighbours...
Happy Thanksgiving everyone :).
