Fall Has Come

farm signOctober is nearly over, and so is the growing season. We have yet to do a fall/winter garden.

We do have plans to set up cold frames and have a go at it. But not this year. So, this last week, we began the 'bedding down' of many things around the farm.

The last of the garden produce was harvested before frost. I had a few banana peppers left on the vines, a couple of fall squash, some large sunflower heads, and the end of the tomato crop. I even had a hand full of strawberries that became my breakfast!

I put away the Fairy Garden and laid down new ground covering and mulch to keep the ivy and weeds from coming up next year.
