In preparation for next year, I've planted tulip bulbs and relocated a lavender plant to one of our garden beds. I've also cleaned out almost all of the tomato plants and pulled out the container plants. In a couple of weeks, before storing the containers, I'll give them a good wash outside. By mid-November, I'll be ready to plant our garlic bulbs for next year's garden haul.
The other step I'm going to take, and most likely this weekend, is to plant fall/winter greens and put the raised bed cover on one of the beds. I'll likely plant a lot of spinach and arugula.
|I planted these chocolate cherry tomatoes a little late- bought the starter plant in Montreal. Looking forward to seeing them ripen! I have put a sheet of plastic around the plant to protect from the danger of frost.|
|It looks like there are strawberries emerging- in mid-October!|
