Well, we finally got a hard frost that killed all the warm weather plants.
That means goodbye to these plants:
- green beans
But it’s business as usual for these root vegetables, which don’t mind a little cold weather:
And these plants will hold on for awhile longer:
But right now this feels like my greatest garden accomplishment:
I know it’s not exciting to look at, but this new garlic bed represents the change in season, and a fair amount of work.
This space previously held tomatoes, but when the frost killed those plants I pulled them out and composted them. Then, over the weekend I weeded the bed, and added compost. After that, my husband gave it a couple of passes with a rototiller, and finally, I planted it with garlic.
Yep, garlic is one of the few things you plant in fall. It’s like a bulb. (Or more accurately you could say “It’s, like, a bulb.”)
