Garden Work

With a frost coming tonight, I did a lot of clean up at my home garden:
– Pick the last of the green tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and watermelons
– Remove tomato tepees (10-ft wood stakes)
– Pull tomato plants and compost (nice with no late blight – right into compost bin)
– Pull and compost all frost sensitive plants: pepper, eggplant, basil, cilantro, beans
– Cut off sweet potato vines and compost (bins nice and full by now!)
– Find my heavy row cover in shed, lay it out on lawn and cut pieces to size. It’s Agribon+ AG-19 from Johnny’s, frost protection to 28F. I used doubled fabric.
– Cover beds with lettuce and winter greens
