Fall in the Garden

 Arrangement by Simone and Riley Kohler
Arrangement by Heidi Chapman

Well, the Harvest Party was big fun and now it's time to think about putting our gardens at the BPMS Community Garden to bed.

John has offered to have the kids in garden class pick up piles in the garden. So it is up to each gardener to pull out those black tomato plants and moldy squash plants and pile them at the path end of their garden plot (not IN the path).  Don't forget to behead those weeds about to drop their seeds. It will make your life much easier next spring!

Do you have a bunch of tiny weeds coming up? Scuff them over with your boot heel or shovel! Or just throw some mulch on them and they will "smother" and die. They are tiny now but they will leap into action with bionic like growth in early spring, before you even think about planting. If you foil them now while they are young and tender, you will be miles ahead next spring.
