Yesterday morning, before the storm, Skippy and I finished up the fall garden cleanup. All of the summer vegetable plants are now removed, the garden has been raked and I planted a big bag of winter rye seed. I also put in the first of my garlic. I planted two rows, and have several more to plant later – maybe today.
Hurricane Noel, who came up the coast near us as a Nor’easter, gave us some rain and a bit of wind all afternoon yesterday, but didn’t cause us any problems. I was sort of hoping a few branches might blow down from the big tree that shades my garden – but no such luck.
