Well, summer is over in the 5×5 Challenge Garden. Yesterday I cleared out the zucchini and the beans. The tomatoes are still going strong, so I left them to ripen.
The expanse of soil is nice to see after spending time cleaning up the garden. I considered adding mulch or compost for overwintering. Then I decided to plant the garden with various chicories and endives. They should do nicely in our cold fall and provide us with food for November & December.
No doubt you’re also cleaning up you little garden, think about adding a few fall/winter plants. If not, add a good layer of compost on top and you’ll be ready to go next spring.
Have you started cleaning out the garden for winter?Filed under 5x5 Garden Challenge, Around the Garden | Comments (6)
