There are plenty of freshly fallen leaves on the site: why not add a few armloads to your bed? A leaf layer like this can help prevent nutrient erosion due to heavy winter rains, and if you've got winter crops or garlic still growing, mulching can insulate plants roots.
Most of us are starting to see a major slow-down in vegetable production, which is to be expected. If you are finished with your bed for the season, please take the time to clear out any dead plant matter and put it in the cedar compost box. We've added a second box to accommodate lots of green waste.
There are many hardy plants that just love the cool fall weather. We have a solid 60+ days of growing left at the garden––why not take advantage with a couple rows of fall crops?
The garden is all set-up! Come by for the Garden Opening April 8th 10am-4pm!
