The weather has been sunny this week.....but it's getting pretty cold outside, so I've been trying to put the garden to bed for the Winter. And if that isn't keeping me busy enough.... it seems that we are having a water drainage problem. For a while there was so much standing water that it looked like a water pipe had broken, but when the sun finally came out the standing water started to slowly disappear. I think the ground was just so saturated from the relentless downpours we've had this year that it simply had nowhere to go. I wonder if anyone else in town has been having problems like that?
Anyways, today I pulled up the last of the Beets and Turnips,
And most of the Carrots....
The rest of the Carrots I mulched with straw to keep them protected during the Winter.
Unfortunately, the Celery got frozen....I was just a couple of days too slow getting it harvested. It's sad to see it all end...the garden was very good to us this year.
Now it's time to start planning for next year!
