My summer garden has come to an end for this season. As the cold temps whip through my back yard, whatever remained living in my garden has now died. The dead plantings make excellent compost. I plan to cut down whatever has remained and till it back into the soil as a means to prepare for the next growing season. Downtrodden leaves, which there are many, also makes excellent compose. I’ll be tilling them back into the ground as well.

It’s times like these I wish I lived in a more extended warmer climate. Oh well.
