First frost 10-10-10
I had already ripped out the dying tomatoes on Friday. All that was left in the garden was the cool weather crops who don't care too much about the frost. I'm hoping to get them to continue doing their thing until Thanksgiving or so. We'll see.
There were plans for hoop houses, but after a difficult year in other aspects of my life, I've decided to forgo the overwintering until next year. I'm hoping that next year will be easier on me. This year was wonderful for figuring out when things needed to be planted for the fall garden. What is there will be eaten by us and the chickens, or stored for later use.
Today is 10-10-10 which is a date used by several organizations to highlight the climate crisis. I'm planning to spend today in the garden putting it to bed. The garlic bed needs to be amended and planted. I'll also be looking to plant my potato onions. More about those later.
