The Plots at the end of September
I can't believe that September is almost over! Boy, time sure does fly! Today I spent 8 hours at the plots cleaning up. All of the tomato plants were pulled and all of the beds were tidied up.
A view from the front
This is where the potatoes were planted this year. I dumped a bag of composted manure on the bed. I will work it in and plant the garlic in this bed next weekend.
a/k/a Tomato Bed 1
All tidied up and ready for winter. I left the marigolds and basil in the bed.
The 3 Sisters planting was at this end of the bed. The hot & spice peppers and eggplants are still going strong at the other end of the bed.
a/k/a Tomato Bed 2
All tidied up and ready for winter
There are still some leeks left in this bed and also the sweet peppers at the far end.
This is not a good picture. I couldn't get a good angle to show the bed. The blackberries are at this end and the raspberries at the far end. As you can see the berries all survived the transplant and are thriving. I'm going to build supports for them next weekend.
The strawberry bed. This bed still needs some attention before winter sets in.
This bed has asparagus at each end and another section in the middle where the onions were planted this year.
The asparagus also survived the transplant and is thriving.

The gate is locked and most things are in order for the winter.....but, not everything is done!
So, how's your Fall Clean-Up coming along???
